Herbert V. Kohler, Jr. is the patriarch of his family as well as the overseer of the Kohler empire these days. He is a larger-than- life visionary who has grown his family’s manufacturing empire into a billion-dollar conglomerate.

Herbert Kohler is also a most engaging storyteller, as I learned a decade ago when I interviewed him for a national magazine. The three hours we spent interviewing were life-changing for me. So, when I launched 64 and More, my first thought was to interview Herb Kohler again.

I began requesting an interview last December. I received interview approval four additional requests and eight months later.
So it was on October 1st, Herbert Kohler and I sat down in his private office where he did what he does best….told the story of the Kohler Company …..not in profit and loss statements, but in the history of the men and women that created and formed the company…. and whom he proudly calls, family.
