Schedule it, and they will come

For more than three decades, the annual Allen & Co. Sun Valley Conference has brought global business tycoons, political figures and investment gurus together for seminars, company-merger discussions and investment-strategy talk. Some of the guests at this year’s event included, clockwise from top left: Bud Selig, 78, the ninth and current commissioner of Major League Baseball. He took part in a sports commissioners’ panel last Wednesday morning moderated by Allen & Co.’s Steve Greenberg. Also part of that panel was National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell, below with his wife, Jane Goodell. At age 54, Goodell’s net worth is listed at $45 million. One of the new sluggers on this year’s Allen & Co. all-star team was Nick Woodman, founder and CEO of GoPro, a camera system for athletes to film their movements. Woodman and his wife, Jill, partially financed their business by buying necklaces in Bali and selling them for a big profit along the California coast. They now have a company worth an estimated $2.25 billion. Fifty-two-year-old Bob Swan is chief financial officer of eBay, the popular Internet sales site. David Ebersman, shown with his wife Michelle, is the chief financial officer of Facebook. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg also attended the conference.
