At the heart of this leadership story is the central idea that success―where purpose, talents and resources come together to

meet the needs of others―cannot be achieved in isolation.



In The Kingmaker, Kyle Ellis, the CEO of powerhouse PR firm Ellis International, is known in an elite circle of people as The Kingmaker. Unlike others in his field, Kyle has the ability to unlock the true potential within his clients while guiding them to the world’s highest levels of power.



After years of masterfully engineering careers to the height of success, Kyle suddenly finds that an alarming number of his “Kings,” as they are known within his close network, are falling from power. Over the course of only a few short weeks, two of Kyle’s most high-profile clients have collapsed into trouble. Kyle is forced to step in to play damage control not only to save their careers but, in one case, their very life.



With longtime friend and driver Parker McIntosh offering keen insights into the motivations of people in their circle, the two form a perfect pairing to master the strategic chessboard of business and politics.

Tony is also the author of The Difference Maker: A Simple Fable About Making a Difference in the Life of Others.

Review:

In The Kingmaker, Tony Bridwell does an incredible job making a case for purpose over profits through the lives of four kings and their maker.
Kelli Valade
EVP COO Chili’s, Brinker International

Tony Bridwell, in The Kingmaker, has written a great Leadership story that reminds us that leaders in search of achievement can lose their way. Our purpose should always be about making a difference in the lives of others.
Doug Brooks
Board of Directors, Southwest Airlines/AutoZone/Club Corp

What we are called to do and how we live don’t always match. The Kingmaker brings these lessons to life in a way I never will forget. I recommend this book to anyone with a pulse.
Wally Gomaa, MHA / MBA
Chief Executive Officer of ACAP Health

Tony Bridwell has written a compelling story that should be carefully read by anyone aspiring to leadership and, especially, by those who are "leaders of leaders." I read The Kingmaker twice – once for the story and then again to solidify my understanding of the principles Tony drives toward.
Tom Miller
President, Symbolist
