I spoke to Grant Reid, the CEO of Mars, Inc, about how the company has stayed relevant over 100 years in business, their Ambassador Program, what he's learned about company culture by visiting different countries, the importance of meaningful work and his best career advice.
Reid has been CEO of Mars since 2014 and member of the Board of Directors since 2015. Mars has net sales of almost $35 billion and operates in diverse global categories, including: petcare; confectionery; food; and drinks. The Five Principles – Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom – unite and guide more than 100,000 Mars Associates around the world. He led the business to an early buy-out of Berkshire Hathaway’s minority ownership stake in Wrigley allowing for the combination of the Mars Chocolate and Wrigley businesses into one segment: Mars Wrigley Confectionery. Previously, Grant was Global President of Mars Chocolate where he led the Chocolate business to record sales, growing the category and Mars’ market share in mature and emerging markets.
