In this episodes of the RETHINK Retail Podcast, Kirat Anand sits down with Monica McGurk live at Groceryshop 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Born into a line of family farmers, Monica McGurk found her humble beginnings in the agricultural sector. Her roots lay amidst fields of corn and potato plants, where she first picked up the values of hard work and responsibility.
Years later, Monica’s journey led her to the elite halls of Stanford University, donning the hats of both a student and an analyst at McKinsey. Yet, she never lost her inclination towards the ‘doing’ side of things, leading her to take the plunge into the corporate world.
Working predominantly in the retail and CPG arena, Monica found herself gravitating back towards the food and beverage industry, a fond nod to her agricultural origins, and made a name for herself working with juggernauts like Coca Cola, Tyson, and Kelloggs.
In her current role as CEO of Tropicana and Mainstream brands at Tropicana Brands Group, Monica combines her in-depth understanding of retail and consumer behavior to drive success.
An advocate for innovation and technology, Monica has boldly led her team through tech stack transformations, marking a new era for Tropicana Brands Group.
