About Keynote Speaker: Tom Ricketts

Tom Ricketts is the Executive Chairman of the Chicago Cubs and longtime fan of the team. In 2009, he led his family's acquisition of the team from the Tribune Company. When Tom and his family were introduced as the new owners of the Chicago Cubs, he outlined three goals for the organization: win the World Series; preserve and improve Wrigley Field for future generations; and to be good neighbors, giving back to the city and the team's North Side neighborhood.

Ricketts is also the co-founders and Chairman of Incapital LLC, an investment bank with underwriting and distribution expertise in a wide range of securities. He also sits on a number of boards in the Chicago area.
