Mr. Sherry is both a former foreign correspondent and tech start-up executive. He came to the Center in 2005 from USA Today, where he launched their profitable online travel vertical then managed online news coverage for the 2004 elections. He caught the entrepreneurial bug in Asia, where he helped launch a company that deployed broadband Internet and web portals to hotels and in 14 cities and nine countries, and was approved for listing on Hong Kong’s second board.
As a journalist, Mr. Sherry was based in Hong Kong, Hanoi, Phnom Penh, Nicosia, and Paris, first for AFP news agency then Dow Jones, where he became politics and policy editor of the Far Eastern Economic Review. Memorable assignments included covering the opening of Vietnam, the fall of Indonesia’s Suharto, and editing the 1996 “scoop of the decade,” the jungle show trial of genocidal Cambodian dictator Pol Pot who had not been seen by outsiders for 18 years.

The websites and blogs in the American Progress family — which include, and — recorded more than 60 million visits and close to 300 million pageviews in 2009.
