Jeanne is an executive in residence at Business for Impact. Formerly an Institutional Affairs Director for Ferrero U.S.A., Inc., Jeanne now serves as a consultant for the company, with a focus on sustainability and toy regulations.
Jeanne joined Ferrero in 1993, where she worked in Bruxelles and Luxembourg, the international HQ for the Ferrero Group, until being repatriated in 2011. While in Europe, she served in various marketing and strategic planning capacities, gaining unique insights into global marketing and communications as well as brand re-engineering and strategic planning. Upon return to the U.S., she added government relations, public policy, and CPG safety and regulations—in particular toys–to her eclectic resume.
Jeanne spent the first half of her career in advertising account management, working at Grey Advertising and Ogilvy & Mather, both in New York City, on a variety of CPG categories: health and beauty aid products (Calgon, Aqua Fresh Toothpaste), soft drinks (Canada Dry), confectionery (Hershey), and coffee (Maxwell House).
Jeanne graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a B.A. in American Studies and Communication Arts. A new resident of Sarasota, Florida, she aspires to become an avid golfer and also enjoys sailing, volunteering, and travelling.
