It didn’t take long for Jim Pisani to understand Timberland’s vital role in nurturing the environment.
Just two weeks into his stint at the Stratham, N.H.-based company in 2016, the global brand president was knee deep in the company’s eco-friendly initiative — getting his hands dirty transforming a vacant Bronx, N.Y., lot into a lush garden.

Jim Hannan, executive vice president and CEO for Koch – Enterprises, shares his perspective on what really makes Koch companies different
In my more than two decades at Koch Industries, I have witnessed—and been part of—remarkable transformations inside the company and the business areas in which we operate. Working at Koch is probably unlike working for most other companies. Spend a few hours at one of our manufacturing facilities or offices across the country, and you might notice the difference, too.
