I would like to emphasize two things about Peccei: That he was a highly able and successful business leader, and that he was held captive and tortured by Gestapo in 1944 for about half a year without giving out the names of his comrades. Later in his autobiography (which, significantly, is called "The Human Quality") Peccei wrote that he was grateful for this latter experience because it formed him.
