Books on the Common recently hosted a book signing for Robert Reiss, a Ridgefield resident, co-author of McGraw-Hill’s new business book The Transformative CEO, released in June.

Mr. Reiss, who was recently featured on CNBC’s Squawk Box talking about the new leadership category of Transformative CEOs, provides this definition: “A transformative CEO creates new value that reinvigorates a company, reinvents an industry or reboots society.

“I believe by disseminating the wisdom and best practices of transformative CEOs, we can help executives and organizations achieve significantly greater success.”

Special guest Peter Cuneo and his wife, Maris, attended. Mr. Cuneo is one of the 44 CEOs featured in The Transformative CEO and has turned around seven companies, including Black & Decker, Remington and Marvel.

The event was catered and photographed by Deb Russo’s Ridgefield Staging.

Ridgefield baker Kristen McNamara of Just Desserts prepared handcrafted desserts, including homemade cookies that were actually a replica of the book.
