Welbilt CEO Joins Corporate Coalition For Diversity
“Becoming a more diverse and inclusive place to work is not only a key priority for me as a CEO, but it is critical to the success of Welbilt as a global company,” says Hubertus Muehlhaeuser, President and CEO. “Engaging different points of view and cultural perspectives will enable us to effectively and efficiently meet the growing demands of our customers today and in the future.”
Launched in June, the CEO-led coalition represents nearly 70 industries in 50 states, and millions of employees globally. Muehlhaeuser joins more than 270 CEOs in the initiative who pledge to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and who see these as business imperatives which improve corporate performance, drive growth, and enhance employee engagement.
The New Port Richey, Fla., firm operates 17 manufacturing facilities throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, and has approximately 5,500 employees.
