CNBC Net/Net is an event-driven editorial franchise that examines the ways companies are promoting and managing innovation, exploiting rapid change and using technology to accelerate growth exponentially.

In this time of rapid technological innovation, shifting demographics and consumer behavior, change comes lightning fast. Net/Net is not a tactical guide or a how-to workshop. We are exploring big trends–technological, demographic, consumer–that will have medium to long-term impact on companies.

Who should attend: Net/Net is geared toward senior financial executives.
No longer a ‘chief accountant,’ today’s financial chiefs are increasingly relied upon by CEOs and boards for strategic guidance. Financial leaders need to be constantly updating their knowledge and expectations or they will be left behind. Net/Net, with a tone of urgency and nimbleness, helps our audience make confident, informed decisions.

Douglas Lebda

Douglas Lebda is the Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and Founder of LendingTree.com.

Frustrated by getting his first mortgage, Doug Lebda saw a need to empower consumers in what is, for most, the largest financial transaction in their lives – financing a home. He envisioned a process where lenders would compete for the borrower's business in a fair and open marketplace. And through this process, lenders would be able to target exactly the right consumers to grow. With that vision and his passion for driving innovation, Doug founded LendingTree in 1996 which has revolutionized how consumers shop for loans and how lenders reach new customers.

After launching LendingTree nationally in July 1998, Doug led the company through a successful IPO in 2000, through the dot-com meltdown of 2001 and a successful sale to IAC/InterActiveCorp in 2003. From 2005 to 2008, Doug served as IAC's President and Chief Operating Officer, leading the company through a transition from a holding company to a unified operating company. In 2008, Doug rejoined LendingTree as it spun out from IAC as a separate public company. Today, LendingTree connects consumers and businesses more broadly than just mortgages including; cars, auto finance, education and home services. In addition to LendingTree and his non-profit work, Doug helps lead other companies that are transforming the way consumers transact online. He's the Chairman of the Board of Recyclebank (recently named one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world), Co-Founder of Tykoon (an innovative financial platform for families and children) and is an active mentor and angel investor.

Before founding LendingTree, Doug worked as an auditor and consultant for PriceWaterhouseCoopers. He holds a Bachelors degree from Bucknell University and an MBA from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia.
