MadeMan.com Announces First Annual Trailblazers List Honoring the Most Innovative and Trendsetting Men of the Year
MadeMan.com and Break Media to Recognize 2009’s Best and Brightest with July 29th Bash in New York
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In a world full of quasi-celebrities, short-lived Internet sensations, and one-hit wonders, some men still stand out as true leaders in their fields, and they deserve to be honored. Break Media and MadeMan.com, the ultimate online men’s lifestyle destination, have selected a list of 50 men who exemplify the image of a made man, and are fit to be called trailblazers.
“Our list of trailblazers represents people that are living life the right way, and the opportunity to get them in the same room is an exciting one.”
The motto of MadeMan.com, “Wit, Wisdom, and Women,” will be on full display in New York on July 29th when MadeMan hosts an exclusive invitation-only party honoring this year’s trailblazers.
“MadeMan.com is not so much a website as it is a portal for men to experience the culture and lifestyle that they desire,” said Keith Richman, CEO of Break Media. “Our list of trailblazers represents people that are living life the right way, and the opportunity to get them in the same room is an exciting one.”
The inaugural trailblazers list recognizes men from a wide range of professions--they are linked only by their ability to live the life of a made man. This year’s honorees include: hip-hop legend Pharrell Williams, Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz, pork-belly impresario David Chang, Avatar leading man Sam Worthington, and Charlie Villanueva, the first NBA player to talk to fans on Twitter during a game.
