This interview with Jonathan Klein , chief executive of Getty Images, a distributor and creator of photographs and other media, was conducted and condensed by Adam Bryant.
Q. Any early leadership lessons for you?
A. My father was C.E.O. of a manufacturing company in South Africa. He wasn’t entrepreneurial, though. He worked for the same company his whole career. He just made his way up from an engineer to running the company. We sort of grew up with business around the dinner table. I have two older brothers. One had his first C.E.O. gig when he was 24, and the other has always had his own companies. I went into law, then spent 10 years in investment banking before deciding that I wanted to do my own thing.
Q. Tell me more about those dinner-table conversations.
