Chief Marketing Officer, IHOP
As Chief Marketing Officer for IHOP Restaurants since mid-2017, I’m responsible for driving IHOP's marketing and culinary strategies, including cementing the brand’s place in culture, leading the development of attention-getting, omnichannel campaigns, and oversight of the brand's menu. Our IHOP work has received Effies, Cannes Lions and many other creative, media and PR awards.
Over the past two years, I was named one of the top 50 power players in the communications field by PRWeek, one of the 50 Most Daring Entrepreneurs by Entrepreneur Magazine and one of the Adweek 50 celebrating innovative leaders for blazing new trails and achieving the best results.
Before joining IHOP, I served as CMO for CKE Restaurants where I was responsible for all facets of marketing and public relations for the more than 3,000 domestic Carl's Jr. and Hardee's restaurants.
I hold Bachelor of Science and MBA degrees from Santa Clara University
