Steve Berkowitz
Chief Executive Officer and Director
Ask Jeeves, Inc.

As CEO and Director Steve Berkowitz is responsible for all business related to Ask Jeeves, Inc. In his prior role as president, Berkowitz is credited with building the management team that orchestrated the turnaround of, today the second largest pure search site on the Internet. In September 2001, he made the critical decision to acquire Teoma Technologies and integrate their unique approach to Web-wide search into the Ask Jeeves flagship properties. He also oversaw's redesign, which improved ease-of-use and removed pop-ups and banner ads from the site in favor of a more contextually relevant search experience. As a result, user satisfaction has grown steadily since 2002, and Ask Jeeves has more than doubled its revenue since Berkowitz came on board.

Prior to joining Ask Jeeves, Berkowitz was the President and COO of IDG Books, where he successfully expanded the "Dummies" series of books into a celebrated consumer brand covering everything from C++ to pet care. He also oversaw the acquisitions of Cliffs Notes, Frommers Travel Guides, Betty Crocker Cookbooks and JK Lasser Tax Guides, which not only diversified IDG's holdings but also established the company as a global consumer book publisher. Berkowitz also served as President and CEO of Intermap Systems, an ASP content provider focused on online consumer healthcare information systems.

Keynote Conversation
Steve Berkowitz, CEO and Director of Ask Jeeves, talks with Search Engine Watch editor Danny Sullivan on growing Ask as the "fourth" network of search.
