ABOUT THE PANEL
Kristen Cavallo (CEO, The Martin Agency)
Kristen's goal with her two kids is to have more stamps in their passports than candles on their birthday cakes. They've conquered all seven continents together, including a visit to Antarctica in 2018. And considering she recently returned to be the first female CEO in the 52-year history of The Martin Agency, it's no big surprise that she's a fan of going places. Since taking the helm at Martin, she has taken key issues head-on - eliminated the wage gap, fought invisibility with 34% diversity hires, gotten major buzz for a smattering of clients, and produced double-digit growth with new clients.
