About Bob

As Chairman and CEO of $3B capital equipment and engineering solutions firm Barry-Wehmiller, Bob Chapman has led the company’s transformation from traditional management practices to what they call Truly Human Leadership–a people-centric approach where Barry-Wehmiller team members feel valued, cared for, and an integral part of the company’s purpose. A sought after speaker for his ideas about the powerful intersection of people-centric leadership and good business strategy, Chapman is intentional about using his platform as a business leader to build a better world. His book, Everybody Matters, which chronicles his journey and leadership philosophy, is a Wall Street Journal bestseller.
