About Bob Buford

Bob Buford is a graduate of the University of Texas and the Owner Managed Program at Harvard Business School. Until the sale of his company in July 1999 Bob Buford served as Chairman and CEO of Buford Television, Inc., which began with a single ABC affiliate in Tyler, Texas, and grew into a network of cable systems across the country. In 1995 Buford wrote the 750,000+-copy bestseller Halftime, a book about how to deal with the second half of our lives. In 2004 he wrote Finishing Well, a compilation of inspiring interviews threaded with Buford's own experiences. In 1984 he founded Leadership Network (www.leadnet.org) to serve leaders of innovative churches as they enter the 21st century. In 1998, Bob launched Halftime (www.halftime.org), an initiative of Leadership Network that helps successful people convert their faith into action and effective results. Shortly after Peter Drucker's death in 2005, Bob spearheaded the efforts to launch The Drucker Institute (www.druckerinstitute.com).
