Peter
Guber

Chairman / CEO

Over the years, Guber has become synonymous with, personally or through his companies, producing or executive producing films that reel in the Oscar nominations (his “Rain Man” won four) and rack up millions at the box office — think “The Color Purple,” “Midnight Express,” “Batman” and “The Kids Are All Right.” But these days, his interests are veering outside the film world. He’s the operating owner of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors and an owner of MLB’s L.A. Dodgers and Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Football Club. On yet another front, he’s co-executive chairman of e-sports and gaming company aXiomatic, which in 2019 participated in a $1.25 billion investment round for Epic Games — developer of “Fortnite” — and a $245 million investment round for Niantic, developer of “Pokémon Go.”
