Kevin Johnson

Former President & Chief Executive Officer

In any leadership journey, there are inflection points when a team must transform in order to reimagine the future. Over the past three years at Starbucks, we successfully navigated the transition from a founder-led to a founder-inspired company. This was a catalyst for the executive leadership team to transform and work together as “one team.” We set a clear vision for the future, embraced a distributed leadership model across the company, empowered leaders to work in new ways, and successfully reimagined our future while staying true to the most important elements of our past: our mission and values. Bob and his team have been a part of this journey since 2018 when they started working with the leadership team and helped facilitate the conversations, planning, and shared experiences that enabled our leadership transformation.
