Developing Principled Leaders

Every day, we do our best to role model our principles through our leadership, our work and our relationships with our consumers, customers, business partners, communities and one another. From the members of Mars family who sit on our Board of Directors to our senior managers, external advisors and Associates, we use our Five Principles: Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom as guides in making our business decisions.


Our leadership team oversees six global businesses: Petcare, Chocolate, Wrigley, Food, Drinks and Symbioscience. The diversity of our categories presents opportunities for Mars and Mars Associates. Each business is dedicated to developing expertise and demonstrating leadership in its category, while all of our businesses are united by consistent standards of quality, governance, talent development and a culture built on our Five Principles.

Mars Associates at every level of the organization are proud to make a difference. Here, a team of more than 200 Wrigley Associates in Poland helped restore a local forest.
