Vice President | Panasonic North America
Kristen and I worked together to help build a new sustainable business unit within Panasonic and ultimately culminated in our launch of a Food, Retail and Solutions Group chartered with developing and launching innovative solutions for some of Panasonic’s largest global customers.
Kristen’s primary role was to facilitate and lead the commercialization of the solutions by getting intimately engaged in a highly matrixed organization both domestically and internationally. Kristen’s differentiated skill set includes an unparalleled attention to detail and a relentless determination to accomplish projects on time.
As a result, in its first year, the business unit was able to overachieve to a result of 136% to plan in top line revenue and a P&L that was $5,000,000 ahead of plan.
Kristen is a highly effective leader, especially as it relates to driving change, creating new processes, and accelerating the go to market of new solutions.
