Building on a 25+ year career in the CPG Procurement, Supply Chain and Responsible Sourcing areas my focus is on establishing and optimizing global supply chain policies, processes and performance measurements. In my current role as VP of E.S.G. and Head of Retail and Consumer Goods for Verisk- Maplecroft I have the privilege of advising and leading strategic and tactical solutions for large scale client initiatives, commodity and country risk analysis, sustainable sourcing and social risks. My focus is on educating corporations on the power of data analytics as solutions to drive systemic change and measurable social impact ; specifically in the areas of labor practices, decent working conditions and environmental impact in CPG supply chains. I also serve as a Trustee for Maplecrofts charity organization, GIRLSTATS. GS empowers businesses to empower girls. We encourage companies to think about how their operations impact girls, and provide them with the information they need to successfully target investments to reduce gender inquality, and improve the lives of girls and young women around the world.
