Michael Ainslie is the former president and CEO of Sotheby’s, the former president and CEO of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and a former director of Lehman Brothers. He was also the founding chairman of The Posse Foundation, serving in that role for 13 years and continuing today as an active board member and mentor to scores of Posse scholars and alums.
As a man who has always embraced the adventures and misadventures of business and life, Michael describes in his book his personal experience with several high-profile events, including the events that led to the largest bankruptcy filing in US history and the price-fixing scandal between Sotheby’s and Christie’s, a scandal that rocked the art world and sent the ex-chair of Sotheby’s to prison.
Ainslie’s memoir shows that sometimes, the greatest lessons in life are a direct result of the challenges we face.
