CEO of Best Buy
I am convinced that a company’s purpose must contribute to the common good.
Hubert Joly is the chairman and CEO of Best Buy and a member of its board of directors. He was the former president, CEO and director of Carlson, a global hospitality and travel conglomerate based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, US.
Hubert Joly and his Alma Mater signed an agreement on July 4, creating HEC’s first-ever personally endowed Chair, devoted to purposeful leadership.
