There is no necessary relationship between fame and power, and great influence is often wielded in willful obscurity. So it was with the irascible, indomitable Eugene Fubini. A physics prodigy who fled Italy when the fascists came to power, his searing intelligence and relentless determination lifted him from obscurity to the highest levels of the Pentagon. Indifferent to anything but results, Fubini worked behind the scenes to shape the strategy and substance of his adopted country's post-World War II defense. Along the way he exerted enormous influence over the development of radar, the rise of the military-industrial complex, the Space Race, and many of the other signature events and movements of mid-twentieth-century American geopolitics. DAVID G. FUBINI is a former Director of McKinsey & Company, Inc. where he worked for over 34 years. He is now on the faculty of the Harvard Business School where he teaches Leadership, Change Management, and Strategy. David's last role at McKinsey was Managing Director of the Boston Office where he led the firm's activities in New England. He was also the founder and longtime global leader of the firm's Merger Management Practice helping with the integration of some of the world's largest Corporate Integrations and Transactions. Before joining McKinsey, David was an initial member of a small group that became the McNeil Consumer Products Company of Johnson & Johnson. David received a degree in business administration with honors from the University of Massachusetts, and a master's degree in Business Administration, with distinction, from Harvard University. He lives in Brookline, Massachusetts with his wife, Bertha Rivera, and their four children.
