Born (1967-10-08) 8 October 1967 (age 52)
OccupationPublisher, editor, author

Grant Schreiber (born Cape Town 1967) is a South African publisher, author and editor.[1] He is the founding editor of Real Leaders, a leadership magazine that focuses exclusively on sustainability and ethical business.[2] He has held the title of managing editor since the launch of the magazine in 2009.

He is known for interviewing influential figures and celebrities such as Sharon Stone, Desmond Tutu,[3] Sara Blakely[4],Sheryl Sandberg and Warren Buffett[5]. Originally started as a members-only magazine for members of the Young Presidents' Organization (YPO) Schreiber relaunched Real Leaders as a mainstream title at Barnes & Noble, New York in September 2017.[6][7]

He is the author of a series of best-selling books in South Africa, that explore dark subject matter with humor, the first of which was: "Is It Just Me Or Is Everything Kak?"[8] in 2007 and "Complete Kak"[9] in 2011. He cofounded a book imprint in 2002 called Two Dogs [10] and collaborated with South African authors in writing books for men.[11][12] The books started a trend in South Africa, of books that tackled serious social issues with irreverant humor.[13][14]

In 2003 he was asked by the South African Government to redesign the new parliamentary mace, that replaced the old version used by the apartheid government.[15] His artistic work on the mace is seen as a symbolic break with the past and a reinterpretation of national imagery, more suited to the post-1994 democratic elections, when Nelson Mandela was voted in as president.

He was interviewed by Forbes[16] in 2017. His opinions and writing have appeared in The New York Public Library[17], Inc.[18] and The Baltimore Sun[19]
