Joel Myers’s childhood dream was to create the most accurate weather forecasts available to people and businesses. Now, as the CEO and President of AccuWeather, he is known as “the most reliable man in the forecasting business.” He leads us on his journey starting at his kitchen table fifty years ago where he founded AccuWeather, which transformed weather into an industry. He continues to provide weather forecasts that saves thousands of lives and billions of dollars.

Joel is a meteorologist by trade and an accomplished entrepreneur, recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the greatest entrepreneurs in American history. Every day across the globe, more than 1.5 billion people rely on AccuWeather forecasts to help them plan their lives, and highly accurate weather warnings to help protect their businesses, allowing everyone to get more value from their day.
