President and CEO
Beth is the first openly gay woman to lead a Fortune 500 company, and leads the Executive D&I Council at Land O’Lakes, driving inclusion across the business in collaboration with 11 ERGs, a Supplier Diversity Program, and the Diversity Impacts Business Board. Through the Land O’Lakes Pride Alliance ERG, Beth and her leadership team represent the company’s commitment to LGBT+ employees, customers and members, recognizing their contributions and value in the marketplace. Under Beth’s leadership, Land O’Lakes has been one of only two Fortune 500 companies in the Twin Cities to celebrate Transgender Awareness, and the business supports LGBT+ businesses through their Supplier Diversity Program. With Beth’s guidance, Land O’Lakes’ Pride Alliance supports local LGBT+ community groups, and Beth has made it a personal priority to recruit and retain a diverse workforce. These initiatives have led to Land O’Lakes being named a top-rated workplace by Indeed and Forbes.
