About This Meeting

Chairman and CEO of Caterpillar Inc. Doug Oberhelman addressed the Detroit Economic Club Wednesday, March 11th, 2015, on the impact of the current financial and geopolitical volatility on multinational corporations.

Oberhelman said, “While I’m not sure we’re living through the most volatile time in our history, we must be close. This makes forecasts hard to do, and capital investments tough to plan. However, there is a silver lining to volatility — and that is that our management team, especially our younger leaders, is constantly learning how to manage in uncertain times.”
