Our CEO shares his vision

Dirk Van de Put, our Chairman and CEO, sat down for an interview with Fortune Magazine to talk about his leadership style, vision and future for MDLZ.

Dirk said: “My style, I believe, is very authentic. Down to earth. Casual. Say it like it is. Be real.”

To encourage employees to experiment with new ideas, he’s looking to create a culture of questioning and of constant improvement. “I need to take away any barriers so employees can move fast. I need to take away blaming or fear of failure or not accepting being different,” he said.
