The Innovators: Pitney Bowes at 100

Go behind the scenes at Connecticut-based Pitney Bowes, a company that has demonstrated a remarkable ability to innovate, in the documentary The Innovators: Pitney Bowes at 100, narrated by Paula Zahn.

The Innovators: Pitney Bowes at 100 premiered Thursday, April 23, 2020 on CPTV.

Known as the “global craftsmen of commerce,” Pitney Bowes has spent a century exploring opportunities and expanding its international reach.

“There’s not many people that can say they created an industry. Arthur Pitney, with Walter Bowes, did. And not only created an industry, it took something that was very important in this country, the Postal Service, and made the Postal Service more efficient and more innovative as well,” said Marc Lautenbach, President and CEO of Pitney Bowes.

Pitney Bowes is one of a handful of companies including GE, Ford, P&G, and IBM that have made it to 100 years. In fact, of all the Fortune 500 companies that existed in 1955, only 12% of them are still around today.

The Innovators: Pitney Bowes at 100 includes interviews with current and former Pitney Bowes executives, a leading business historian, a business school professor and a curator with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
