Joel Hyatt
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Current TV

Joel Hyatt, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Current, has twice before turned ideas into successful ventures, both times against significant odds. He took on the legal establishment with Hyatt Legal Services, which provided low-cost services to middle and lower-income families and grew to serve over three million clients. His Hyatt Legal Plans became America’s largest provider of employer-sponsored group legal plans. Hyatt Legal Plans was acquired by Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in 1997.

Hyatt also served on the faculty at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, where his courses on entrepreneurship were among the most popular at the school.

American Lawyer magazine identified Hyatt as one of the nation’s ten most influential attorneys in the 80s for his efforts in making the legal system more accessible, and Business Week recognized him as one of the top 50 business leaders in the country. Hyatt also served as National Finance Chair for the Democratic Party in 2000.
