“Most hard-charging senior executives have thought of leaving their stressful jobs and bugging out to Bali. Ben Feder had the guts to do it. Even if we can’t follow in his footsteps, we all can benefit from his experience through the compelling story he tells in Take Off Your Shoes.” —Tom Glocer, Former CEO of Thomson Reuters and Founder of Angelic Partners
Ben Feder is a business executive and investor who is also devoted to his wife and four children. He is a senior executive at Tencent, the Chinese global conglomerate that owns WeChat and dominates China’s internet-related media and technology industries.
Ben Feder is first and foremost a family man, devoted to his wife and children. He’s also a world traveler and C-suite business leader. Currently Ben is President, International Partnerships (North America) at Tencent, the Chinese technology giant (dominating China’s ISP market, owner of WeChat, and rival of Alibaba). Formerly, he was CEO of Take Two Interactive, the publisher of the smash video game hit, Grand Theft Auto. An elite Ivy League education prepared him for the rarefied air of corporate finance and management. But, his success in business came at the cost of his personal and family life. That led to a reassessment of priorities resulting in taking a sabbatical year in Bali with the whole family.
