BOB CHAPEK EARLY LIFE
Robert Chapek was born on August 21, 1960 (at the age of 61) in Hammond, Indiana, USA. He is the son of Marie Lofay, a working mother, and Bernard W. Chapek. Bernard, his father, was a World War II veteran. Chapek described himself as a “latch-key kid” because both of his parents worked, which was unusual at the time.
Watching both parents work “instilled a work ethic in me, and they worked hard for the nicer things in life,” according to Chapek. I saw their role modelling, and it left an indelible impression on my drive and ambition.” His family went to Walt Disney World on an annual basis.
In 1977, Bob Chapek graduated from George Rogers Clark Jr./Sr. High School. He went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in microbiology from Indiana University Bloomington and a Master of Business Administration from Michigan State University.
