Boss swaps the high life for burger patty

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Television - BIANCA DOMJEN Un­der­cover Boss Aus­tralia, TDT, Mon­day, 8.30pm

JB Swift’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Iain Mars says farewell to his beloved mo­tor­bikes, pres­tige sports cars and preg­nant wife, to find out what’s go­ing on be­hind the scenes of his $ 3 bil­lion meat ex­port com­pany.

With a wig and a creative dis­guise, the well known boss ( pic­tured) fronts his em­ploy­ees as Alec Ge­orge, in an at­tempt to find in­spi­ra­tional work­ers who make his com­pany what it is to­day and to learn what dayto-day life is like for the av­er­age JBS worker.

He even has a go at the dan­ger­ous task of draft­ing cat­tle into smaller groups and the te­dious job of pack­ing frozen burger pat­ties.

This sea­son we also meet CEOs from a va­ri­ety of national com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing lead­ing Aus­tralian beauty sa­lon group, Ella Bache; Great South­ern Rail, which op­er­ates Aus­tralia’s great­est longdis­tance rail jour­neys and hol­i­days and Hutchin­son Builders, one of the coun­try’s largest pri­vately owned build­ing com­pa­nies.

There’s also Sodexo, a global provider of on-site ser­vices so­lu­tions to the re­sources, de­fence, cor­po­rate, ed­u­ca­tion and aged-care mar­kets and the lead­ing youth not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, the YMCA.
