John W. Thompson: former CEO of Symantec (you know them best from being the Norton Antivirus people), former VP of IBM, current CEO of Virtual Instruments.

Oh, and he went to Florida A&M University and is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi. After FAMU, he went to Sloan at MIT for his MBA.
It’s not just sports and entertainment.
