Connecting brands to people and people to brands is Sheryl’s passion, rooted in her strong expertise in research, insights, strategy, execution and measurement. She’s known for rebuilding brands by turning data into insights and using those insights to action strategies for short- and long-term growth. Sheryl has helped to build the equity, revenue and profit for a mix of global brands as a senior executive with Fortune 500 companies including Kraft, Kellogg’s, Intuit and Manulife.

Civic duty is in Sheryl’s DNA.
