Our Guest: Brian Wellinghoff

Brian Wellinghoff forged his unique perspective as an integral part of defining and creating Barry-Wehmiller’s Truly Human Leadership culture. He directly contributed to multiple chapters in Everybody Matters as well as scholarly research on the BW culture. His quick ascension in the organization led him to be selected as one of St. Louis’s 30 under 30, as he became the youngest corporate Director at BW at the time. Wellinghoff has repeatedly been tapped by CEO Bob Chapman and CPO Rhonda Spencer to tackle the most challenging organizational opportunities- from sales incentives and structure, to cultural communication, to launching continuous improvement, to launching Barry-Wehmiller University, to contributing to external initiatives through the Chapman & Co Leadership Institute.
