Executive vice president/CFO
Schwan Foods Co.
One of only three women on Schwan Foods’ 10-member leadership team, Robin Galloway became CFO of the frozen-food manufacturer in 2015. With sales of $3.7 billion, Schwan’s is trying to simplify product labels and has enlisted the skills of up-and-coming chefs—as well as Wayzata high school students—to create fresher tasting, healthier frozen foods and school lunch entrées. In addition to watching Schwan’s margins, Galloway will likely help elevate other businesswomen in 2017 if she receives an invitation to join the prestigious Minnesota Women’s Economic Roundtable—now considering her for membership.
