Please join us as we hear from Rob Povolny, president and founder of Tampa-based Fresco Foods, Inc. (Eat Fresco). Rob will share his story of going from big corporate America to starting and operating Eat Fresco with his wife. This is a luncheon you will not want to miss.

About the Speaker:

Rob Povolny is the Founder & President of Fresco Foods, Inc., which produces the brand Eat Fresco - an offering of fresh prepared meals sold throughout the retail market. Rob has worked in the consumer packaged goods industry, with such companies as Coca-Cola and Nestle and earned an MBA from Florida State University. After leading the business development for a food ingredient company, collaborating with global food processors, he realized that our packaged food options must improve! A new business model was needed to answer the demand for fresh, high quality and convenient food that we can feel good about eating. Eat Fresco is preparing for substantial expansion after gaining positive market acceptance. Rob is excited to challenge the mass production of packaged foods and make lives a bit easier.

As executive leaders, we have functional objectives to attain, financial commitments to meet, and (for some) promotions to secure. Yet how we obtain those results can be the key to leading teams - or working with partners - who are willing to "take the hill" over and over again with you.

Our speaker, Tracey Thorsen, will explore the common thread of leaders who struggle. And, she'll discuss the four elements that are foundational to any successful executive. Join the conversation and see how you can take "your how" to the next level.

Thank You to our Presidential Level Sponsors
