CHICAGO, Feb. 7, 2013
CHICAGO, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Ilene Gordon, Chairman, President & CEO
of Ingredion Incorporated will address an audience of Chicago business leaders
at a February 14^th luncheon hosted by The Executives' Club of Chicago.
Gordon, one of Fortune's 50 most powerful women in business, has been
Chairman, President & CEO of Ingredion since 2009. During that time she
oversaw the $1.3 billion acquisition of National Starch. In a world where over
one-half of mergers fail to add value, Gordon led the company through a
successful integration and re-branding process. The Company's name was changed
to Ingredion (from Corn Products International) to better reflect their
position as an innovative, customer-focused provider of ingredient solutions.
Gordon is expected to discuss how she was able to address, identify, execute,
and integrate a business transformation strategy, altering the growth
trajectory of the company. She will also answer audience questions during the
Q&A portion moderated by Deb DeHaas, Vice Chairman, Central Region Managing
Partner & Chief Inclusion Officer, Deloitte LLP.
KPMG is a platinum series sponsor for the Global Leaders Luncheon series.
Other sponsors include Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and NW Indiana, JPMorgan
Chase, Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Slack & Company.
