Millionaire Story – Kraft Foods CEO – Irene Rosenfeld
Do you know who Irene Rosenfeld is?
She is a self-made millionaire, wife, widow, mother of two girls, philanthropist and – oh, by the way, CEO of Kraft Foods – one of only two women CEO’s of the 30 companies in the DOW Jones Industrial Average. In 2010, Forbes listed her as the second most powerful woman in the world (right behind Michelle Obama).
In an era where women didn’t typically make it to CEO levels, Irene has excelled. Now that she is there, she is exerting influence to make it easier for those following in her stead.
