Summary

Edit
Driven Igniter ••• Strategic Change Leader ••• Intuitive Solutions Creator I am an igniter of breakthrough thinking for growth in consumer goods businesses ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. I not only ignite innovation but I drive to results. I motivate and lead teams toward the right direction and the right outcomes through engagement and strategic change leadership. In my first two weeks at Starbucks, I led a cross-functional, cross-divisional team to develop and implement a strategy to further expand Starbucks beyond company-owned stores. The key ingredient was to repair a broken relationship with Costco. I created a unique consumer experience and product offering that transformed the Starbucks-Costco relationship and generated over $20 million in profits for Starbucks in the first 12 months. As a Global Executive, I have helped grow businesses in quickly changing environments or in struggling/stagnant situations in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. For a household goods business, I turned around a sluggish brand by launching new products and identifying licensing opportunities which increased sales by over 20% and added $10 million in profits. With a Latin American division of an outdoor products company, I transformed a struggling business through repositioning multiple brands, changing distribution channels and introducing new business models, which increased sales by 16% and doubled profitability in the first year. My infectious personal energy, ability to lead people toward the right direction and my intuitive solutions skills are a proven and unique combination of capabilities that allow me to drive positive change and growth for any company with which I align. Other Skills: • Full P&L responsibility • B2C and B2B marketing • Customer-focused • Fluent in Spanish, conversant in French • Joint Venture and M&A experience • Private Equity
