In today’s episode, we’re joined by the President of Mars Wrigley North America, Anton Vincent, who oversees iconic brands, such as M&M’s, Snickers, and Lifesavers. During our conversation, Anton shares some of the challenges and opportunities he’s faced along his path to the top. We also discuss what it’s like as a Black leader driving and co-creating organization culture and leadership development. To wrap up, we’ll provide you with receipts on representation levels of black executives in corporate America, as well as a double dose of C-CRETS on what you can do to get on the executive career path, and what leaders can do to build inclusive and equitable work cultures.
