She may have been described as an “accidental CEO” when she first took the top spot at Xerox back in 2001, but she quickly proved the skeptics wrong by successfully executing the multi-billion dollar turnaround that brought the company back from the brink of bankruptcy. By her own admission, her rise to the corner office was “pretty erratic” but, in retrospect, it’s clear to see that those years in sales, HR and operations, prepared her well. Not surprisingly, she is today a much sought after Board member, advisor and public speaker.

Still going strong at 70+, she is a self-made woman in every sense of the word - though she is quick to point out she didn’t do it alone.

Born in India, Sarita Nayyar found that not having a brother was the best thing that could have happened to her. The youngest of three girls, she was raised more like a son. That helped her forge a path that led her to study in the US and then land a coveted spot in brand management at Kraft Foods. After more than 20 years at Kraft, where she ended up running billion dollar+ businesses, she decided that rather than relocate her family, she would re-create her career and joined the World Economic Forum (perhaps more commonly known as the folks that put on the annual meeting of world leaders in Davos, Switzerland).  True to form, her hard work and keen intellect landed her the top spot at WEF US a few years later. Listen in to hear how she successfully transitioned from India to America, school to work, and corporate to non-profit, all while being a multi-cultural woman most often surrounded by Caucasian men.

Cindi Bigelow was literally born into her role as the 3rd generation head of the family business.  But that in no way should suggest she didn’t fully earn her spot.  Since the age of 16, she’s been working hard to be ready to take her place at the helm. Hear how she has helped the company (and herself) thrive by: keeping the business in front of ego; learning to not be a control freak; defining what “having it all” means to her; and creating an environment people want to work in.

Gina Boswell is such a “gem” it’s no surprise to me that she’s now leading “the jewel in Unilever’s crown” as the head of the UK & Ireland. The blending of a warm, grounded personality with a keen intellect and strong drive to achieve is just a wonderful and highly impactful combination. Despite sometimes losing the “dual career battle” with her husband, she has managed to go from strength to strength, leading countless beauty brands and businesses in the US and around the world - including senior roles at Estee Lauder, Avon, Alberto Culver and now Unilever. She is someone anyone would be lucky to have as a friend; proud to have as a partner; and grateful to have as a colleague. This is an interview you don’t want to miss.
