Jack Welch is one of the world’s most respected and celebrated CEOs, best known for serving as Chairman and CEO of General Electric (GE) from 1981 to 2001.

In his 21 years as CEO, Jack transformed GE into the world’s most admired and successful company with his innovative management techniques. Revenues grew five-fold from $25 billion to $130 billion, income grew ten-fold, from $1.5 billion to $15 billion, and the company’s market capitalisation had a 30-fold increase of more than $400 billion. His achievements are considered epic, and as a result, thousands of companies around the world have adopted his methodologies.

In addition to holding the distinction of being the youngest CEO at GE, Jack has also written two New York Times best-selling business books, wrote a regular column for Businessweek magazine, and is frequently called upon as a commentator for various business programs on television.

Jack still actively works with fervour in an attempt to train future business leaders through the Jack Welch Management Institute. Founded in 2009 at the Chancellor University, this online executive MBA degree programme actively uses his trademark “Welch Way” technique for vigorous management training. He is also currently the head of Jack Welch, LLC, where he serves as Senior Advisor with the private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice and is an advisor to IAC (Interactive Corp).
