Our Panel:
 

Elaine Haney is a serial entrepreneur with a longstanding career successfully bringing software products to market. Starting out in enterprise B-to-B solutions, Elaine held several leadership positions in product management before transitioning to the Internet space and developing her first major Internet brand, Switchboard.com. She was instrumental in taking Switchboard from an Internet spin-off to a profitable, publicly traded company, to a successfully acquired entity. Elaine went on to partner with Jeff Taylor, founder of Monster.com, to help him bring his Eons.com Baby Boomer brand to market. Elaine was given the opportunity to spin out a piece of the Eons.com business and led two rounds of financing, raising $5M to fund Tributes.com, the online obituary brand. By 2015, over 6M consumers and thousands of funeral homes were relying on the Tributes brand for obituary news, and 150 television & radio stations featured obituary sections on their websites powered by Tributes.com. Elaine successfully orchestrated the sale of Tributes to its largest competitor, Legacy.com, in 2015, and then operated as Legacy’s Chief Data Officer, Chief Product Officer & COO before playing a pivotal role in the sale of Legacy in 2017 to a private equity firm. She recently rejoined forces with Jeff Taylor to deliver media and software associated with Ray Dalio’s bestselling book, Principles. Elaine sits on the boards of Comfort Zone Camp and Byond22. She received her BS in Computer Science cum laude as a Commonwealth Scholar at UMass Amherst, and her MS in Applied Management from Lesley University. Elaine was honored by UMass Amherst College of Information and Computer Science in 2016 for Outstanding Achievement in Management. Elaine served on The Boston Club Board as Chair of the Technology Committee from 2013 through 2017, and returned in 2021 to chair the Marketing Committee.

Before joining WBUR in January 2020, Margaret was president of AtlanticLIVE, The Atlantic’s events division, which during her tenure produced more than 100 conferences a year across the country. Prior to The Atlantic, Margaret enjoyed a storied career at NPR, spanning decades.

Earlier at NPR, Margaret was VP for programming with responsibility for all non-news shows, injecting a high degree of editorial sophistication into program development and acquisitions. During her tenure, NPR earned some of the most prestigious honors in journalism, including multiple Peabody awards, duPont-Columbia Awards and an Edward R. Murrow Award. Margaret is vice chair of the board of The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and a board member of Wallace House at the University of Michigan, home to the Knight-Wallace Fellowship for Journalism.
