Greg Blatt is a business executive who has worked with a variety of online dating companies. He never really planned on working with Match Group as its chief executive officer but did so after serving as a lawyer in New York. It didn’t take him long to realize that he didn’t want to work in the law sector in the way he was doing so he went to work in the entertainment law field for some time. After working with Martha Stewart, he began to work in the dating industry. He believed that online dating was going to become something much bigger than it was at the time, and this is what prompted him to help build Match Group.
Greg Blatt believes in the power of meeting people face to face and feels doing so has made him a very productive entrepreneur over the years. When engaging in meetings, he doesn’t play a passive role but often asks many questions to get to the bottom of an idea. Many entrepreneurs keep their schedules fully booked, but Blatt doesn’t do so because he wants to be available to take part in the most important happenings in the companies he serves with. To do so, he likes keeping an open schedule that allows him to be flexible and agile. That is not to say that Greg has an easy schedule, in fact the flexibility can put him in back to back meetings at times. If you are in a similar role, like being a CTO, it might be good to consider an executive assistant to the CTO because that allows you to have more time since someone else can worry about managing the little things.
Instead of directly working on new ideas for the companies he works with, Greg Blatt has come to rely on others who are capable of doing so. He feels it is his role to help inspire and empower his employees so they can bring ideas to fruition. Blatt has been able to keep his company on top because of his ability to plan ahead for anything that may come up in the future. He believes that overconfidence can be a stumbling stone, and for this reason, he likes to look into many different ways to capture the attention of his company’s target market. One of his favorite web services is Gmail, and he uses it exclusively for all of his email needs.
