Tom Ricketts

Tom Ricketts is the Chairman of the Chicago Cubs and a lifelong fan of the team. In 2009, he led his family’s acquisition of the team from the Tribune Co. When Tom and his family were introduced as the new owners of the Chicago Cubs, he outlined three goals for the organization: win the World Series; preserve and improve Wrigley Field for future generations; and to be good neighbors, giving back to the city and neighborhood. Together with their sister Laura and brother Todd, the Ricketts siblings serve as the board of directors for the Cubs. Tom is also the Chairman of Chicago-based Incapital LLC, which he co-founded in 2000. Incapital is a global investment bank that underwrites and distributes fixed income securities issued by major corporations, banks and federal agencies. Tom is a board member of Choose Chicago, the Field Museum, the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, the Executive Club of Chicago and the Wood Family Foundation. Tom has a bachelor’s degree in economics and an MBA in finance from the University of Chicago.
