Our next Executive Roundtable will be co-hosted by Bob Chapman, Chairman and CEO of Barry-Wehmiller, a $3 billion global capital equipment business with more than 12,000 team members.
He became the senior executive of this private company in 1975 at age 30 when the 80-year-old business had $20 million in revenue, outdated technology and a very weak financial position. Despite the obstacles, Chapman applied a unique blend of strategy and culture over the next 40 years in leading Barry-Wehmiller through more than 100 successful acquisitions. Over the past two decades, a series of realisations led him away from traditional management practices to what he now calls Truly Human Leadership – a people-centric approach where his employees feel valued, cared for, and an integral part of the company’s purpose. At Barry-Wehmiller, they have a unique measure of success: by the way they touch the lives of people.
Bob will share his views and experiences with us, and we will have an opportunity to explore what we can learn from him in peer-to-peer confidential discussions with fellow executives. We would love to have you with us in this exploration and hope that you’re able to join us. Please let us know if you would like a seat at our virtual table taking place on Wednesday, 07 June at 16:00-17:30 BST.
