EXCELerate 2015 Welcomes Gala Keynote Speaker: Ann Mukherjee, President of Global Snacks Group and PepsiCo Global Insights
When Champions Give Forward, Everyone Gains
This Survivor of Struggles — whether growing up in Kolkata, India or grabbing marketshare among crowded snackfood shelves — will share her own story as a woman leader and show us why giving forward as a mentor to others is so salient.
We are very excited to announce Ann Mukherjee will speak at the Gala Dinner on Thursday, October 1 at the EXCELerate 2015 conference!
At PepisCo, Ann drives accelerated growth globally for the company’s snackfoods category, as well as leads foresight into the future growth opportunities for Pepsico, using predictive analytics and creating transformative commercial marketing capabilities. PepsiCo has 22 different brands that generate net annual revenues of over $66 billion. Prior to joining Pepsico, Ann had over 15 years of brand management and marketing experience working with Kraft and Citibank.
Ann has won numerous awards and accolades, including being named among Forbes’ Top 50 Most Influential CMOs for 2014, and being acknowledged as Marketer of the Year in 2007 by Brandweek.
Advertising Age recognized her as one of the Women to Watch in 2007 and said of her: “When you talk about ideas with … Ann Mukherjee, you want to — do something. Run a mile, meet a deadline… learn Russian. That happens when you meet inspiring people.”
Ann’s influence goes well beyond the snackfood industry. She’s done incredible work as a Thought Leader and Architect of Change through her involvement with Chetna, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping South Asian women overcome domestic violence. With her own story, Ann is an indelible inspiration to many women and girls across the globe.
The Gala event, hosted by BMO Bank of Montreal, offers a fabulous evening celebrating the achievements of women entrepreneurs from across the country. The evening will be an opportunity to network, be inspired and to learn from each other. This event is open to all the conference delegates plus an additional 150 business people, government representatives, as well as trade practitioners from all sectors.
We encourage you to register as soon as possible to not miss this opportunity to hear Ann Mukherjee speak.
