Robert J. Davis, president and chief executive officer of Lycos, Inc., was the company's first employee in June 1995. Since that time Davis has transformed Lycos from an Internet search engine to one of the most powerful Internet hubs and media companies worldwide. In less than four years, Davis has led Lycos from a company with $2 million in venture capital to a multi-billion dollar business. Under his leadership, Lycos jumped from the fastest IPO in Nasdaq history, a mere nine months from inception to offering, to an esteemed member of the Nasdaq 100.

Through a string of strategic partnerships and investments along with eight major acquisitions, Davis has led Lycos in developing the Lycos Network, a pioneering Web media model that delivers mass reach and diversity of audience and programming. This community-based, integrated network of complementary Web sites and entities includes three top 10 Web sites and is one of the most visited hubs on the Internet being used by one out of every two Web users each month.

Davis holds a bachelor's of science degree, summa cum laude, from Northeastern University and an MBA, with high distinction, from Babson College. He also recently received an honorary Doctor of Commercial Science's from Bentley College in May of 1999. In addition to Lycos, he serves on the Board of Directors of Boston College HS, The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, The Massachusetts Interactive Media Council and Maverick Online.
