Peter Brabeck-Letmathe and Nestlé - a Portrait
Peter Brabeck-Lemathe is well known as the most powerful businessman in Switzerland. His name has been inextricably linked to the global business giant Nestlé for over 40 years. As CEO, he transformed Nestlé from a leading food company to the world‘s most successful Nutrition-, Health- and Wellness- Company. As Chairman of the Board, his international influence, both socially and politically, has had a major impact, especially in the policy areas of “Corporate Governance” and “Water” – our most precious resource.
Peter Brabeck-Lemathe is far more than a highly successful manager with a remarkably impressive career. Author Friedhelm Schwarz‘s numerous interviews with Peter Brabeck-Letmathe directly and with many other leading individuals in the economic, political and cultural world, paint an inspiring portrait of Mr. Brabeck as a man who is actively concerned with the conditions of life of all the world’s peoples. The central concern of his life’s work is the idea that a responsible businessman should create shared value for both shareholders and society alike.
