Chris Lowney currently vice chairs the board of CommonSpirit Health, one of America’s largest Catholic healthcare systems, with more than one hundred hospitals across twenty-one states. Chris, a onetime Jesuit seminarian, later served as a Managing Director of J.P. Morgan & Co. in Tokyo, Singapore, London, and New York before leaving the firm in 2001. He has authored six books, including the bestselling Heroic Leadership, which has been translated into eleven languages and is on the recommended reading list of the Commandant of the US Marine Corps. He has also authored Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads; and, most recently, Everyone Leads: How to Revitalize the Catholic Church, which won a Catholic Press Association award. Chris was born in New York City, hates the Yankees, and is a long-suffering Mets fan. He graduated from Fordham University and holds seven honorary doctoral degrees (but has been manifestly incapable of actually earning one the old-fashioned way).
