At Gorton’s Seafoods she launched several major new product and business initiatives, managed an international turnaround, and developed a new direct-to-consumer business. Products she developed grew to represent 20% of sales and propelled the company to #1 national brand share. She is leveraging this experience to achieve similar results for her own clients.
