- CEO & Co-Founder, Whole Foods Market
- Author of Conscious Capitalism: A Whole-istic Approach to Capitalism
John Mackey, iconic CEO and co-founder, is known for his all-natural approach to a mega chain of grocery stores, Whole Foods. His stores are, in part, credited with a boom in the healthy food movement where terms like “hormone free” are commonplace.
He’s also taken the formula for conscious capitalism and corporate social responsibility to a whole new level and other businesses are following
