Billy Beane

Executive VP of Baseball Operations, Oakland Athletics Baseball and Subject of "Moneyball"

Considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today, Billy Beane has molded the Oakland Athletics into one of professional baseball’s most consistent winners. Beane shattered traditional MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated wins by implementing a statistical methodology now known as the "Moneyball" philosophy. Today, this philosophy has been adopted by organizations of all sizes, across all industries, as a way to more effectively, efficiently, and profitably manage assets, talent, and resources. Come learn from Billy Beane how the power of analytics is helping modern businesses, including those in construction, to differentiate themselves from the herd and prepare for long-term success.
