Is your business keeping up?
Join us for a robust discussion with three CEO's each with unique stories of how they've built their businesses to thrive in the rapid evolution of business.
Mark McIntosh - CEO, RevGrow
McIntosh's 20+ year career has taken him from CFO, to a Director and Executive Recruiter with one of the largest staffing firms in the nation, to one of the top Sales Leaders at a National Top 10 CPA Firm, and most recently as the Director of Business Development at an elite, boutique search and consultative staffing firm. For decades, when collaborating closely with firm owners and consultants, he discovered a disturbing trend: (1) most struggled with attracting their ideal clients to grow their firm consistently year after year. (2) In addition, they didn’t have the processes in place to remain top of mind and continue to build relationships and add value throughout the buyer’s journey. McIntosh launched RevGrow in April, 2016 to help companies solve these two problems.
Morgan Hare - CEO, HYLACO
With more than 30 years of experience in the cosmetics and skin care industries, Hare has held executive marketing and product development positions at numerous national, blue-chip consumer product and retail companies. At Avon, she was General Manager of Skin Care and Marketing Manager of Color Cosmetics, where she championed and launched Anew Skin Care – a product line that still remains an important financial asset to Avon some 20 years later.
Hare has had the opportunity to provide leadership and innovative brand support in health and beauty executive roles with QVC, HSN (U.S. and Europe), Tupperware, and BeautiControl.
Hare is currently the president and cofounder of HYLACO, LLC, an ingredient and product development company specializing in marketing a breakthrough in cosmetic technology called the HylaSponge®System.
Under HYLACO, she cofounded eraclea, a line of skincare products that uses the HylaSponge®System. She also cofounded and serves on the board of the AiRS Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness for women who have had mastectomies due to breast cancer and want reconstructive surgery. Restorative breast surgery is a vital part of total physical and emotional healing for many breast cancer survivors, yet many who desire it don’t have sufficient financial resources and may not understand what options are available to them.
Dr. Kenneth Adams, MD – Board of Directors, Paper for Water
Seven years ago, Dr. Adams’ daughters, Isabelle and Katherine, learned that girls in developing countries often did not go to school because they were hauling water all day, and that a child died every 20 seconds from unclean water. So they started a project making origami Christmas ornaments and exchanging them for donations to raise money for water wells. Their project grew into the non-profit organization Paper for Water, through which the girls have raised more than $1.5M and have helped fund over 170 water projects in 17 countries.
Isabelle and Katherine, now 15 and 12 years old, have received numerous awards and completed multiple speaking engagements, have traveled internationally to visit their wells and met with the US Ambassador to India and a member of the Indian parliament. One of their current projects is helping give access to clean water to 250 homes on the Navajo Reservation at Smith Lake, New Mexico. On June 17, 2016, Nickelodeon’s HALO Effect aired an episode dedicated to Paper For Water’s efforts on the reservation.
Ken, who is half Japanese and taught the girls how to fold paper, is chief operating officer of Skilled Rehab Specialists LP and an associate clinical professor at UT Southwestern Medical School at Dallas. He handles the back office, chauffeurs and sets up furniture at events.
