As well as leading the Advance Newhouse partnership, Bergman remains active in the general industry. She co-chaired this year’s Mirror Awards with Charter chief Tom Rutledge. “Leadership is about the heart,” she says. “People trust—and are dedicated to—kind, considerate and caring leaders who empower them.”
