    Bob Chapman is Chairman and CEO of St. Louis, MO-based Barry-Wehmiller. He was recently named the #3 CEO in the world by Inc: Top 10 List of the World's Best CEOs

    Bob Chapman's thoughts about a way forward, in business, education, our society, and in general, stem from a deep-rooted conviction that we all deserve to know that who we are and what we do matter, and that we can-and should-- use the platform of business to provide that for people. Bob's ideas have been gleaned from decades of work to transform Barry-Wehmiller from a traditional midwestern manufacturing business into a global organization comprised of 115 companies through which both the people and the business thrive. Today, a $3B business, Barry-Wehmiller is known as much for its ideas on people-centric leadership and culture transformation as it is for the machinery and technology it provides and is determined to share what has been learned about caring business leadership so that companies like Barry-Wehmiller become the norm rather than the exception.
