Jarratt oversaw
development of
the 2019-21 innovation pipeline,
which includes ongoing development/feasibility assessment for
2019 initiatives to drive increased
profitable growth for the company and the dairy category.
She championed and oversaw
the development of a first-ever
customer innovation incubation
project, TruMoo Indulgences,
which resulted in a stronger customer relationship and changed
its perception of Dean Foods as
a strategic growth partner.
Jarrett co-led a trade marketing implementation plan to
evolve the narrative of what
Dean Foods should be famous
for at retail, including oversight
of three pieces of thought-leadership editorial content.

Toni Mascaro

played a leading
role in the Stir it Up! fundraiser, which brought in $1.3
million for the FMI Foundation

Kelly
Vlahakis-Hanks

President and
CEO, Earth Friendly
Products

In 2017,
Vlahakis-Hanks led Earth
Friendly Products to one of
its most successful years and
spearheaded initiatives to
increase gender diversity.
These moves led to a c-suite
and senior management made
up of more than 50 percent
women, as well as a chemist
team that is 80 percent female,
and created an all-new line of
safer, plant-powered home aircare products.
Under Vlahakis-Hanks' leadership, the company achieved
the unprecedented Triple Crown
of sustainable manufacturing:
carbon neutrality, water neutrality
and Platinum-level Zero Waste
certification at all four of its manufacturing facilities.

Simona Faroni
Owner/President,
G.S. Gelato &
Desserts Inc.

Kerry Farrell
SVP, Sales,
Eversight Inc.

Farrell's leadership led to a doubling of revenues,
and she has worked tirelessly
to elevate the role of revenue
growth management teams so
that trade promotions live up to
their potential and are compelling
and engaging to customers.
She advocated data-driven
decision-making and transparency to enable true brand-retailer
collaboration, with one manufacturer seeing a 48 percent ROI
increase and another seeing 10
percent higher sales.
Farrell served as a strategic
adviser to her customers in
sharing insights from the lessons
and best practices gained from
the Eversight artificial-intelligence
and experimentation platform.

Angela
McElwee

President,
Gaia Herbs

Roxanne
Kanne-Roush

VP-Training and
Development,
Fareway Stores Inc.

Kanne-Roush
identified more opportunities
than ever before for training,
sending 50 retail employees to
the Midwest Dairy Council and
45 assistant market managers
to Tyson, organizing a Fareway
Leadership Management workshop for 300 employees, and
conducting corporate scanning
coordinator training and a corporate produce seminar.
Her team also added food
safety training, and she implemented a food protection
manager certification process,
certifying about 70 employees.
Kanne-Roush also helped implement Clearinghouse for Workbased Learning, a program that
provides support and mentoring
to Iowa's youth.

Robin L.
Anderson
VP Human
Resources,
Giant Food

Faroni led
several new
developments that added to
G.S. Gelato & Desserts' bottom
line, setting it up for a spot on
the Inc. 5,000 Fastest Growing
Private Companies list for the
fourth year in a row.

McElwee
oversaw the
brand's successful launch of
the Mushroom+Herbs line, as
well as the Gaia Herbs Golden
Milk campaign to promote
consumers' mindfulness and
establishing daily rituals.

Anderson
oversaw the
brand-centric reorganization of
Giant, which affected 160 associates with no loss of positions
- in fact, she added more than
100 new jobs, filling 95 percent of
them in just four months.

She created the vision for
the FreshForward event that
reflected a new approach to
exploring the current and future
of fresh in retail. The event
was held in an unconventional
space that allowed for more
modern ways of networking.

She manages the business
and marketing aspects of the
company, making the decisions
about current products and
future innovations, as well as
staying involved with clients to
ensure continued success.

She also led Gaia Herbs to
become a Certified Living Wage
employer in 2017, adding to
the mission-driven impact of
the business and leading to
significant reduction in turnover
of hourly employees.

She championed associate
engagement, with an overall
improvement of 4 percent and a
96 percent participation rate.

Mascaro created an intimate
and progressive learning space
for the Future Leaders Experience, FMI's most significant
event for professional and talent
development.

Last year, Faroni was honored
by PG's sister magazine, Store
Brands, for her contribution to
G.S. Gelato & Desserts' innovations in retail gelato and sorbet
manufacturing.

During her time at Gaia, she
has contributed to the tripling
of net sales and the launch
of 50 new products, as well
as establishing the industry's
first seed-to-shelf traceability
program.

Anderson coordinated a
partnership among the human
resources business partners,
risk management and worker's
comp adjusters to review cases
and create modified duties to
reduce loss-of-hours claims by
16 percent, resulting in a savings
to insurance premiums.
