It was Lou Pritchett who changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as "partnering."
Lou Pritchett rose from soap salesman to VP Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble (P&G). Over the course of 36 years, he made corporate history as an agent of change at P&G. He served as president of the company in the Philippines and as corporate VP of World Sales, where he worked in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, India, Middle East, North and South America. Lou Pritchett stood at the vanguard of corporate futurists to challenge a hidebound corporate giant to face the future by creating the future, thus ensuring its continuing role as one of America's great corporate success stories.
Lou Pritchett boldly engineered an adventuresome partnership between two corporate titans. Lou Pritchett talked Sam Walton, the founder and chairman of Wal-Mart, into getting into a canoe to ride the rapids of the South Fork of the Spring River in Arkansas. By the end of that white water ride, these two visionaries had agreed to change the way America did business, partnering Sam Walton and Wal-Mart. In 1989, Lou retired from his post at P&G to spread the "Gospel of Change."
