James A. Cusumano (www.JamesCusumano.Com) is chairman and owner of Chateau Mcely (www.chateaumcely.cz/en/homepage), chosen in 2007 by the European Union as the only Green 5-star, castle hotel in Central Europe, and in 2008 by the World Travel Awards as The World’s Leading Green Hotel. Chateau Mcely offers programs that promote the principles of Inspired and Conscious Leadership, finding your Life Purpose and Long-Term Fulfillment. He began his career during the 1950s in the field of entertainment as a recording artist. Years later, after a Ph.D. in physical chemistry, business studies at Stanford and a Foreign Fellow of Churchill College at Cambridge University, he joined Exxon as a research scientist and later became their research director for Catalytic Science & Technology. Dr. Cusumano subsequently co-founded two public companies in Silicon Valley, Catalytica Energy Systems, Inc.—devoted to clean power generation; and Catalytica Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which manufactured drugs via environmentally-benign, low-cost, catalytic technologies. While he was chairman and CEO, Catalytica Pharmaceuticals grew in less than five years, from several employees to more than 2,000 and became greater than a $1 billion enterprise on the NASDAQ stock exchange before being sold. Subsequent to his work in Silicon Valley and before buying and renovating Chateau Mcely with his wife Inez, Dr. Cusumano returned to entertainment and founded Chateau Wally Films (www.chateauwallyfilms.biz), which produced the feature film What Matters Most (2001: www.imdb.com/title/tt0266041), distributed in more than 50 countries. Dr. Cusumano lives in Prague with his wife, Inez, and their daughter, Julia.
