Business as Mission to End Poverty: An Interview with the President of Reynolds Food Packaging


By Dan King - Bob Larson is the President of Reynolds Food Packaging, an industry leader in the production and sale of a full range of stock and custom products for the foodservice, supermarket, food processor and agricultural markets. He was also recently elected to the Board of Directors for Five Talents International, an organization that is fighting global poverty through microfinance and education.

Since 2009, Larson has supported Five Talents by fundraising and speaking on behalf of the organization in the Chicago area. In May of 2009, he traveled with Five Talents to Kenya and Uganda as part of a Business as Mission team, where he taught business skills seminars to entrepreneurs. I had the pleasure of traveling with Bob on that trip, and recently had the opportunity to catch up with him to talk about the high calling of his work and fighting poverty.
What has your leadership role at Reynolds taught you the most?
In order to be successful you’ve got to unleash the full potential of the people in the organization. It’s impossible for an organization to succeed unless you do that. You need to have a clear strategy and mission in terms of where you’re trying to take the business, and then make sure that you’ve communicated that well. You provide clarity of roles and responsibilities, then empower people to perform and hold them accountable for results.
