Jochen Zeitz is a philanthropist, conservationist and has been the CEO of various global companies.
Jochen was the youngest CEO in German history to head a public company when he was appointed CEO of sporting goods giant PUMA in 1993 at the age of 30. He stayed there for 18 years, leading to an operational change in the company that brought it back from near bankruptcy to being one of the top 3 sporting goods brands worldwide. During this time, he also conceived and pioneered the Environmental Profit and Loss account model that attached a monetary value to the company’s environmental impact. This model has influenced how other companies measure their effect on the ecosystems and environments that support their operation.
Zeitz served as a Board member, Chief Sustainability Officer, and CEO of the Sport & Lifestyle Division of Kering, a global luxury goods brand. He has served as a Board member at Harley Davidson since 2007, establishing the company’s Brand and Sustainability Committee, and was appointed President, Chairman, and CEO of the company in 2020. He is also on the Board of Cranemere.
Zeitz co-founded The B Team with Sir Richard Branson. He is also co-founder of Zeitz MOCAA, Founder of the ZEITZ Foundation, Segera Conservancy, and The Long Run: which now safeguards over 23 million acres in 22 countries and touches the lives of 750,000 people worldwide. Zeitz is on a mission to make business both environmentally and socially sustainable, without sacrificing profitability.
