Herbert Kohler has spent the last 50 years of his life forming, leading and representing the Kohler Corporation originated by his grandfather, John Michael and expanded by his Uncle Walter and his father, Herbert, Sr.—his family. That’s why it seems ironic when Herb openly admits that, in his life, the Kohler corporation has always comes before anything or anyone.

Yet at the end of the 64 and More Ten Questions segment of Herb’s interview, this forthright man reveals his professional standard as grounded in a dedication to Kohler employees and customers. Equally revealing is that in reviewing his life and business experiences, Herb Kohler ends this interview right back where he started….coming to terms with his father.
