Logitech CEO on COVID-19 crisis: “I just sat at my kitchen table and cried”


Logitech’s stock has gained more than 20 percent this year, and sales of its video conferencing tools have surged since the pandemic pushed companies into remote working arrangements. The lockdowns accelerated what was already a trend, says CEO Bracken Darrell. He plans to build on the momentum by “aggressively innovating” and increasing the budget for research and development as the company grows. Despite the boost to his business, he says there are no winners from the crisis and reveals how it has affected him personally.
