Stephen Saunders is a successful Internet entrepreneur, award-winning technology writer and videographer, Min's Marketer of the Year 2010, and the founder of DeusM, an integrated marketing services company owned by United Business Media (www.UBM.com), targeting the fastest growing segment of the online publishing industry: business social media.

DeusM is Steve's third startup. In 2005 he founded Internet Evolution (www.internetevolution.com), a groundbreaking, award-winning, global online community dedicated to investigating the future of the Internet. Prior to Internet Evolution, he was the founder and CEO of Light Reading (www.lightreading.com), an online startup, which was sold to United Business Media in 2005 for $33 million. Founded in 2000, Light Reading rapidly became the largest and most influential source of news and analysis of the telecommunications industry.

Saunders has been recognized with many awards for his work, including six Jesse H. Neal Editorial Achievement Awards from The American Business Press and three awards from the Computer Press Association. In March 2008 Saunders was inducted into Min's Digital Media Hall of Fame.

In April 2009 he was named to the No. 2 spot on Folio magazine's Folio 40 ranking of magazine industry influencers and innovators, one ahead of President Barack Obama. The magazine subsequently revised the list following a public outcry, demoting Saunders to the No. 3 spot.

He also is the author of three books, The Data Communications Gigabit Ethernet Handbook (McGraw-Hill, 1998), The McGraw-Hill High-Speed LANs Handbook (McGraw-Hill, 1995), and The True Story of King Arthur (48hourbooks, 2009). Gripping reads, all. Especially the last.

Saunders started his career in publishing in 1983 working as a van boy (literally, a boy on a van) delivering the BBC's Radio Times program guide. Simpler, happier times for him.
