Sherry Phillips is a dynamic media executive with over 26 years of experience in digital, native, print and live events. A Forbes veteran, Sherry has an extensive background in sales and is known for boosting revenue. Sherry has led the events team since 2018, including programming, logistics and production and was recently elevated from Forbes’ Chief Sales & Marketing Officer to Chief Revenue Officer. As the Chief Revenue Officer, Sherry leads Forbes’ revenue operations globally and Forbes’ growing media business, which ranks number one across all business and demographic segments. While she served as Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Sherry led the creative, design, integrated and sales development teams, all of which play crucial roles in activating, executing and selling sponsorships, partnerships and events across all aspects of Forbes’ revenue-driving business. Sherry also previously served as Senior Vice President of the Live team, during which Forbes hosted over 100 in-person events a year throughout the world – from smaller, bespoke events for influential business leaders to larger-scale events. In March of 2020, when the pandemic quickly halted all in-person gatherings, under Sherry’s leadership, Forbes pivoted and took its events virtual to maintain the connection with key audiences and ultimately support these communities at a time when it was needed most. The business media giant leveraged technology to create seamless experiences during its virtual events for both its audiences and speakers, hosting over 60 virtual events with 50,000+ attendees from 188 countries in 2020 alone. Sherry’s success as a trusted leader derives from her ability to develop innovative and award-winning customer solutions, including securing host cities for Forbes’ flagship Under 30 Summits. She exhibits a keen ability to create lasting relationships with a customer-first approach that inspires generations below her to rise up. Sherry graduated from the University of Michigan and lives in Philadelphia, PA with her husband and four children.
