7:00 - 7:45 PM - Presentation by Karen Alber – “Be the Leader People Want to Work For”

Ms. Alber, with many years of executive leadership experience in supply chain and information technology, now coaches individuals and organizations to enact positive change that becomes ‘the way we work around here’.

Prior to her current role as a coach and advisor, Karen was Chief Information Officer with MillerCoors and HJ Heinz. In her role as CIO, Karen was responsible for providing executive vision and leadership in the development and implementation of new business processes and improved information systems. After 10 years of being a CIO, Karen made the decision to retire and spend available time focusing on coaching individuals and future leaders. This is a personal passion of hers and has been a ‘sweet spot’ of her leadership style over the last 20+ years.

Prior to her roles at MillerCoors and Heinz, Karen held leadership positions at PepsiCo, including Vice President of Enterprise Systems Readiness, training and development; and Vice President of the company’s integration management office. She also held a number of roles with Quaker Oats, including Vice President of integrated business solutions, and supply chain director for the Quaker Foods division. Additionally, Karen worked at SAP America as industry segment manager for its food and beverage sector.

Karen’s experience leading large teams and coaching hundreds of individuals through varying levels of change throughout her career leads Karen to be uniquely qualified to now coach individuals and organizations to drive personal change and do great things. A called upon industry speaker, her fusion of real-life stories and conversational techniques connect with varying sized audiences at an intimate and instructive level.

Karen earned a Bachelor of Science in operations management from the University of Iowa and an MBA from Loyola University in Chicago.
