Businessmen and women usually learn that there is more than one way to lead their organizations. Since there is a lot of room for differentiation, it might be hard coming up with something that has not been tried before. Lori Senecal, however, found a way to be very innovative in her CEO duties of CP+B.
Senecal’s most impressive endeavors include working with Kraft Mac & Cheese, Letgo selling application, and NBA 2K video game. According to The Drum, the success throughout these ventures yielded amazing landmarks such as 1 billion free media impressions for Kraft Mac & Cheese and 45 million downloads of the Letgo app. Senecal was also featured on Fast Company’s list of 100 most creative business people in 2017.

To facilitate all of these achievements, this CEO includes her employees in all evaluation processes. Changes such as a box in the break room where employees can write their suggestions have helped her business grow. Also, constant employee empowering and talent-driven hiring process is what helped the business thrive.
