Conference Speakers

A living example of overcoming obstacles and defining one’s own success and future, Max Siegel’s track record in business has consistently been that of financial growth and competitive success.

Siegel’s family history as a youth was marked by divorce, the early death of his father and growing up in an environment of poverty, addiction and abuse. Charting his own course not dictated by his circumstances, he became the first African-American to graduate with honors from Notre Dame law school. In a career that began as a teen-age shift manager at Long John Silver and later as a sales rep for General Motors, he has become one of the country’s most prominent sports and entertainment executives by employing a philosophy of understanding the motivations of the clients and partners he works with.

Early in his career, Siegel began his own sports representation agency, where his clients included Hall of Famers Reggie White and Tony Gwynn. He then moved into the music industry and was Senior Vice President at Sony/BMG and as President of Zomba Gospel, Tommy Boy Gospel and Verity Records, where he led one of the most profitable divisions in the Sony BMG system. He also was part of the executive team overseeing the careers of stars such as Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Usher.

Bucking traditional views of the industry, he was named President of Global Operations at Dale Earnhardt Inc., where he sold tens of millions of dollars in sponsorship; staying in the auto racing industry as the owner of Rev Racing, Siegel took NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program and advanced it from a fledging effort to add diversity to the sport into a competitive juggernaut on the racetrack. In 2012, Rev Racing driver Kyle Larson became the first Drive for Diversity Driver to win the K&N Pro Series East title; this year Larson was named Rookie of the Year for NASCAR’s Nationwide Series.

A native of Indianapolis, Siegel currently is CEO of Indy-based USA Track & Field, the national governing body for track & field, long distance running and race walking. Throughout his career, he has created literary, television and film properties, including the 2010 BET Networks series, “Changing Lanes,” and the 2011 ESPN documentary, “Wendell Scott: A Race Story.” He also is the author of “Know What Makes Them Tick: How to Successfully Negotiate Almost Any Situation.”

A national figure in entertainment, sports, motivational speaking and diversity affairs, Siegel has appeared on Oprah, NPR’s Tavis Smiley, ABC’s “Good Morning America,” ESPN, CNN, and CNBC; in print, he has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the New York Times, Ebony’s Power 100, Crain’s New York Business, Black Enterprise and Billboard Magazine, among many others.
