Better Together: Conversations with Innovative Leaders

A new podcast series brought to you by TAPPI and Paper3600 Magazine

Focus on “Truly Human Leadership”

CorrExpo 2023 Opening Keynoter Headlines August Episode


This episode of Better Together welcomes Bob Chapman, chairman and CEO of St. Louis, MO-based Barry-Wehmiller, a $3B global capital equipment and engineering solutions company with more than 12,000 team members. Over the past two decades, Chapman's approach has evolved from traditional management practices to Truly Human Leadership—a people-centric approach where his team members feel valued, cared for, and integral to the company’s purpose. Bob Chapman will also be the opening keynoter at CorrExpo in Cleveland, OH, August 28-30.


In this inspiring conversation, Bob talks with Better Together host Jan Bottiglieri about the transformative effect this unique approach can have on the pulp, paper, and packaging industry—and how caring about people is not just successful, but absolutely necessary.
