Newman’s Own Redefines Corporate Responsibility Says Will Marre

Leadership expert, Will Marre, applauds Newman’s Own for their wildly successful hybrid business strategy that takes social responsibility to a whole new level.

PRLog - Dec. 14, 2010 - ENCINITAS, Calif. -- Newman’s Own defines success when it comes to combining business with a social cause, according to Will Marre, acclaimed leadership speaker and expert and CEO of Realeadership Alliance.  Newman’s Own unique hybrid business strategy makes them top on the list of Marre’s Giving is Winning companies (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-Okvx-I8JY).  

Marre’s list of Giving is Winning companies stems from his extensive research, 21 Companies for the 21st Century (http://www.willmarre.com/wm/21-companies-leadership-research/), being conducted with Clemson University and the University of California San Diego on what successful companies are doing in today’s challenging environment that average companies are not.    Through data research, executive interviews and in-the-trenches client projects with many of today’s thriving companies, Marre hopes to inspire other companies to incorporate giving into their primary business strategy.  

While Newman’s Own is a great example of what giving can do for business strategy, what sets Newman’s Own apart from other companies is that 100 percent of profits are donated to charities, most notably Paul Newman’s beloved Hole in the Wall Camps that provide children in need with unique camp experiences free of charge.  Most remarkably, since 1982, over $300 million has been given to thousands of charities.  

Marre states of Newman’s Own success, ““The business equation is a little different when human passion is the primary driver of the enterprise.”  

James Austin, chairman of Fairfield University‘s School of Business Initiative on Social Enterprise said, “Newman’s Own reveals the synergistic relationship between the social purpose and the commercial operations.”
