    Since I purchased the Washington Post a little more than two years ago, I have had the opportunity to work very closely with Steve in his role as President and General Manager. In that time, I found Steve to be a passionate, talented and creative executive and I was very favorably impressed by how well the team functioned under Steve's leadership, and how respected Steve was by his team. I was particularly impressed by the technology and engineering group that Steve had built, which I found to be a truly world class team. Overall, the Post team has consistently exceeded my expectations and much of the credit for that success goes to Steve. 

    Steve is a clear and insightful creative thinker and strategist who is also very talented at creating a culture of disciplined execution. 

    I recommend Steve highly as a potential Director or Advisor to any company that needs practical strategic insight, seasoned executive guidance and a focus on disciplined execution. And beyond everything I've noted above, Steve is also just simply a good man and fun to be around!

    I had the pleasure of working with Steve for over a decade at The Washington Post.  Steve is one of the smartest and wisest people I know.  He has excellent business judgment and the ability to get right to the heart of a problem and come up with possible solutions.  While Steve's background is in media, his business expertise would apply to any business, from an existing, traditional business to a young start-up.  Equally important, Steve is also a great guy and a pleasure to work with.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Steve Hills for nearly 15 years through our mutual association with Young Presidents Organization (YPO) , as well as serving together on numerous non-profit Boards in the Washington DC metroplex. There are very few people that I have known throughout my professional career that possess Steve's unique blend of intellectual and emotional intelligence. His exceptional business intellect spans a wide area of business .....from strategy to operations to solid leadership.  In short , Steve Hills is an extraordinary executive and business thinker who has always led organizations with integrity, honesty, and a very high business acumen.
