Young Presidents’ Organization, Inc.: Young Presidents' Organization Gathers Global Chief Executives in Berlin

BERLIN
, 25 May 2015 -YPO (Young Presidents' Organization), the world's premier peer
network of chief executives and business leaders, held its annual European
event, EuroKonnect, in Berlin where 150 CEO members and prospects engaged
with global peers and thought leaders to explore the changing face of Europe.

"The inspiration of the event is the vibrant city of Berlin as well as
Germany's economic and political influence in modern Europe. The new Europe
also means a continent of complicated geopolicitcal relations between East
and West, creating new challenges," says Przemek Gacek, 2015 EuroKonnect
Chair, CEO of Grupa Pracuj S.A. and a member of the YPO Poland and EuroStar
Chapters. "In these changing times, YPO EuroKonnect seeks to connect chief
executive officers with leading regional and global resources to explore the
potential of creating and accelerating innovation in Europe."

The event began with a keynote speech by YPO member Alexander Cappello, a Los
Angeles-based global entrepreneur who has led several public and private
companies over the past 40 years, including Cappello Group, Inc. a global
merchant bank whose principals have conducted more than US$155 billion in
transactions in 50 countries.

Participants also heard about entrepreneurialism in the region from peer
member John Paul Lynch, an American entrepreneur who has been doing business
in Poland and across Europe since 1991. In September 2014, John was awarded
the highest civilian honor in Poland, the Presidential Order of the Gold
Cross from the President of the Republic of Poland, Bronislaw Komorowski, for
his contributions to building Poland's free market economy during the past 25
years.

Berlin native Alexander Kudlich from Rocket Internet shared highlights of the
spectacular rise of Rocket since 2007 and its ambitious mission to become the
world's largest Internet platform outside of the United States and China.
Other world-renowned resources included Zurich-based venture capitalist Klaus
Hommels, who engaged members in discussions around Europe's digital ecosystem
and the impact of technology on business strategy, and holocaust survivor and
writer Margot Frielander, who shared her inspirational personal story of
resilience.

The conference comes following positive results from the first quarter 2015YPO
Global Pulsesurvey, which reported that European Union CEOs remained positive
about the prospects for their organizations and the wider business
environment. For the first time in the survey's history, EU confidence
surpassed the global composite and was only marginally below confidence in
Asia and the United States.

Each quarter, YPO surveys its network of 22,000 CEOs in more than 125
countries, on questions related to current and expected economic environment
affecting their businesses. It is recognized as the only CEO economic
sentiment indicator to span the global on a quarterly basis.
