Joseph Mancuso in ESPN Grantland Commercial

Joseph Mancuso (born May 6, 1941) is an American author, who has written 24 entrepreneurial books for entrepreneurs and CEOs, and an international businessman and keynote speaker. Mancuso is the founder, CEO and current president of CEO Clubs International, a worldwide membership association of mid-market CEOs. He frequently travels the world, opening new chapters, and speaking and doing consulting work with existing international CEO Clubs. He is a well-known business speaker and consultant in Mainland China and Japan. He is not, however, the head of the American unit of the organization. The American CEO Clubs head is Kevin Dunne.



Mancuso earned a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in 1963. He then earned an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School in 1965, and a Ph.D. Doctorate from Boston University in Educational Administration in 1975.

Business incubators

The first U.S. business incubator opened in 1959, when Joseph Mancuso started the Batavia Industrial Center in Batavia, New York. Since that time, business incubation programs have emerged as successful economic development tools throughout the country and around the world.

CEO Clubs

Mancuso founded The Chief Executive Officer's Clubs in 1977, and left his professorship at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts to run CEO Clubs full-time in 1978. The CEO Clubs are the world’s oldest and largest non-profit business association for CEOs and entrepreneurs. The organization describes its purpose as 'CEOs making money and having fun while learning'. Mancuso also publishes the CEO Clubs Chief Executive Officer newsletter.

Personal life

Mancuso is married, with six children and six grandchildren. He currently resides in New York City. A new Mancuso book is planned for release in 2017.
