Randall Lane

Forbes Editor Randall Lane will offer a welcome as we honor this year’s most noteworthy and influential dentists.

Lane is the editor of Forbes Magazine, where he has helped it reach its highest-ever U.S. readership (6.7 million) with new emphases on young innovators and disruptors.

He created two of the most significant annual events of the past decade: The Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, which gathers the world’s billionaires to tackle global problems, and the Under 30 Summit, which convenes 2,000 Millennial entrepreneurs and game-changers from the Forbes 30 Under 30 lists to help chart a course for business over the next 50 years.

His latest book project covers the latter topic: You Only Have to Be Right Once: The Unprecedented Rise of the Instant Tech Billionaire (Penguin).
