Hubert Joly

President and CEO, Best Buy

Mr. Joly has a strong reputation as a turnaround and transformation expert, having begun his corporate career leading the struggling French division of Electronic Data Systems.  In his three years with EDS, the company reversed its revenue slide, going from 1.3 billion French Francs to 2.1 billion, while significantly increasing profit margin. At Vivendi Universal, he helped lead the restructuring and growth of the company’s video game business, followed by the restructuring of the company itself. Prior to joining Best Buy, Mr. Joly was CEO of Carlson, where he led a renaissance across all its businesses, including its restaurant and hotel divisions. Just before becoming Carlson CEO he led a subsidiary unit, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, growing its sales from $8 to $25 billion in four years. Mr. Joly serves on the boards of Ralph Lauren Corp., the Retail Industry Leaders Association, the Minnesota Business Partnership and as chair of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.  He began his career with McKinsey and Company, where he was a partner.

Mr. Joly is a graduate of École des Hautes Études Commerciales de Paris (HEC Paris) and of the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris.
