She has made remarkable contributions to the industry. She has raised the overall standards of professionalism among executives across all sectors through initiatives that focus intelligence, insight and a unique talent for forging enduring relationships upon shared objectives. Nothing exemplifies her drive and her dedication better than her work to found WISE – Women Impacting Storebrands Excellence – a long overdue force for the recognition and professional advancement of women in store brands manufacturing, retailing and throughout the industry.
