Bob Thiele (July 27, 1922 - January 30, 1996) was an American record producer.

He took over as head of Impulse! Records after founder Creed Taylor went to run Verve Records and signed, and recorded such artists as John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Archie Shepp, Albert Ayler and others. Thiele's most successful hit song was with Louis Armstrong's What A Wonderful World, which he co-wrote with George David Weiss.

Thiele later formed his own record label, Flying Dutchman Records, which is now part of BMG or Sony BMG
