General Mills




An executive on the rise, Dana McNabb had been serving as General Mills’ group president of Europe and Australia when she was tapped in July to head a new team dedicated to shaping the future of food. Living in Switzerland for now, her influence is sure to be felt at headquarters in Golden Valley as McNabb oversees groups working on acquisitions, internal startups, venture capital investments, and consumer trends. “We’re focused on maintaining our innovation pressure and reshaping our ways of working,” McNabb says. “That happens across our business when we obsessively understand and solve consumer problems.”
