“It’s all about the people.” That’s Garry Ridge’s mantra. As CEO of WD-40 Company since 1997, Ridge has helped reignite excitement and create cultures that foster break-through innovation in companies and workplaces in more than 60 countries.
Ridge will provide the closing keynote at the 2020 Top Producer Summit, which takes place Jan. 27-30 in Chicago.
In his current role, Ridge is responsible for developing and implementing high-level strategies and the oversight of all relationships and partnerships for WD-40. He is passionate about learning and empowering organizational culture.
A native of Australia, Ridge joined WD-40 in 1987 and has held various positions in the company, including executive vice president and chief operating officer, and vice president of international. He has worked directly with WD-40 in more than 50 countries.
At the Summit, Ridge’s session will be a look “under the hood” of one of the world’s most recognized brands, where:
- Employee engagement is above 93%
- 98% say they “love to work at WD-40 Company”
- 99% say that their “opinions and values are a good fit” for WD-40 Company.
This high engagement has resulted in a company that has doubled in revenue in the last decade and is on a trajectory to double again in the next.
