Biography

Professor Klaus Schwab was born in Ravensburg, Germany in 1938. He is Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation.
He founded the Forum in 1971, the same year in which he published Moderne Unternehmensführung im Maschinenbau (Modern Enterprise Management in Mechanical Engineering). (See the history page for more information).
In 1998, with his wife Hilde, he created the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship, The Foundation supports a network of over 350 social entrepreneurs around the world.
In 2004, with the financial contribution received as part of the Dan David Prize, he established a new foundation: the Forum of Young Global Leaders (for leaders under 40). Seven years later, in 2011, he created the Global Shapers Community (for potential leaders between the ages of 20 and 30). The purpose of the two foundations is to integrate young people as a strong voice for the future into global decision-making processes and to encourage their engagement in concrete projects that address social problems.
Schwab has encouraged the establishment of communities providing global expertise and knowledge for problem-solving. Among them is the Network of Global Future Councils, the world’s foremost interdisciplinary knowledge network dedicated to promoting innovative thinking on the future
The Forum employs over 700 people, with its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, and additional offices in New York, San Francisco, Beijing and Tokyo.
An engineer and economist by training, Professor Klaus Schwab holds doctorates in Economics (summa cum laude) from the University of Fribourg, in Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, and a Masters of Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. In 1972 he became one of the youngest professors on the faculty of the University of Geneva. 
His latest books are The Fourth Industrial Revolution (2016),  and Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution (2018).
He holds 17 honorary doctorates, and national medals of honour, including the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun of Japan, the Grand Cross with Star of the National Order of Germany and the Knight of the Légion d’Honneur of France. He was also knighted by Queen Elizabeth II – Knight Commander of the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George (KCMG).

A tour of the Magic Mountain
Can the World Economic Forum keep its mojo?

The organisation behind Davos faces a conflicted identity, increased competition and uncertain succession

BusinessJan 16th 2020 edition





In 1971 a precocious German academic—at 32 years old, the holder of five degrees in engineering and economics—hosted a conference. The setting was the newly opened congress centre in the Swiss resort of Davos, best known for its tuberculosis sanatoriums and as the backdrop for Thomas Mann’s “The Magic Mountain”. Klaus Schwab wanted to use the symposium to make European businesses think more about stakeholders beyond those who own their shares, and to expose them to American management methods. The fees paid by the 450 who came generated a profit of SFr25,000 ($75,000 in today’s money), which Mr Schwab used to endow the European Management Forum.
Renamed the World Economic Forum (wef) in 1987, its signature annual event has become the ultimate A-list bash for plutocrats. It attracts nearly 3,000 business folk, politicians, take-me-seriously celebrities and journalists hoping to taste the zeitgeist. Visitors, some unable to get passes to the main venue, crowd panels and parties in hotels or on the “fringe”, a growing unofficial Davos on the town’s main drag. (The Economist sends journalists to the Forum and our parent company receives revenue from organising events for clients in Davos during the meeting.)
At 81, Mr Schwab remains the ringmaster, and on January 21st he will open the 50th annual gathering. Amid all the über-networking, another raft of “multi-stakeholder” initiatives will be launched, including a “one trillion trees” reforestation project. Star turns will include President Donald Trump, back after skipping 2019, and Greta Thunberg, who will be joined by a pack of other teenage activists, invited to help the conference “look to the future”. None of the wef’s imitators, which put on Davos-wannabe events from Aspen to Boao, has matched the wef in its ability to bring together public- and private-sector power-brokers, says Sir Martin Sorrell, former boss of wpp, an advertising giant, who now runs s4 Capital, a media firm.
Mr Schwab likes to say the wef is “committed to improving the state of the world”. Not everyone sees it that way. To many ngos its commitment is to globalist elites, peddling an agenda that exacerbates inequality. Anti-wef rallies are being held across Switzerland this week and next.
More surprising, critics can be found on Mr Schwab’s side of the barriers. “He vacillates between genuinely wanting to bring global peace and prosperity, and simply wanting to be close to money and power,” says a Davos regular. The same can be said of his creation. In interviews with The Economist Davos devotees and wef collaborators praised its convening clout, in the Alps and through its pioneering network of regional summits, including a “Summer Davos” in China. But they noted that world-changing ambition can lose out to a fear of upsetting the corporate and political leaders whose presence makes Davos a hit. The wef’s evolution from convener of policymakers to shaper of policy is raising eyebrows. And almost all those interviewed wondered if the wef’s allure will persist when Mr Schwab no longer leads it.
The wef has plenty to commend it. Mr Schwab’s genius, says an ex-colleague, is to have developed it into “a sort of un for public-private discourse and co-operation, an alternative forum in a world of broken global governance”. Mr Schwab points to gavi, a global vaccination alliance launched at Davos 20 years ago, as an example of a successful public-private partnership to which the wef “played midwife”.
Politicians like Davos because ceos are there. Tony Blair came to pitch Britain to business and Binyamin Netanyahu to plug Israel as a tech hub. It is a lower-stakes setting to forge intergovernmental deals. After un climate talks collapsed in 2009, leaders relaxed in Davos and laid the foundations for what became the Paris agreement, says Adrienne Sörbom, co-author of a book about the wef.
Bosses, for their part, relish rubbing shoulders with world leaders and being in the room for historic set-pieces—like Nelson Mandela’s address in 1992, before his election as South Africa’s president—or in the building for historic compromises, such as that on Gaza reached by Israeli and Palestinian leaders in 1994.
Everyone loves the wef’s networking efficiency. Those who come can get a lot done in a few days, saving thousands of air miles. Conveniently, Davos is not too hard to get to but remote enough that once there, you are stuck: no dipping in for an hour, then scooting across London or New York for lunch with your lawyer.
This has proved a winning formula financially, too. The wef is a non-profit foundation. Some 42% of its revenue, which has grown steadily to SFr345m ($356m) in the last financial year, goes on its 800 employees, including those at its campus by Lake Geneva. It enjoys a special status, similar to that conferred on the Red Cross, which means that the Swiss state picks up part of its security costs (which are considerable, given its clientele). Much of the rest is spent on “activities”, including Davos. The remainder goes either into the foundation’s capital or its strategic reserves, which are just shy of SFr300m. Beyond that, disclosure is scant: the wef’s public filings in Geneva’s corporate registry contain little except skeletal extracts of board minutes and announcements of director appointments and resignations.
