Boasting an MBA from Harvard Business School and one of the most enviable resumes today, David Maisel is not just ahead of the curve, he is defining it.

Most recently, Maisel was Chairman of Marvel Studios and EVP, Office of the CEO, for Marvel Entertainment. which controls a library of more than 5,000 comic book characters including Spider-Man and X-Men. While at Marvel, he spearheaded the creation of the transformed Marvel Studios, the launch of the Iron Man film franchise.
