• History

    Founded in 2011, LEAD Network was officially established in 2013 under the name Female Executives Movement ( FEM). The name was changed to LEAD Network in August 2014.

    Inspired by Network of Executive Women in the US, several female and male CPG executives gathered in 2011 to explore the possible launch of a network organisation for the CPG industry in Europe focused on female leadership and gender diversity.

    Today, our membership consists of 1700+ senior female and male executives (to be), representing over 140 manufacturers and 80 retailers. Our ambition for 2017 is to reach 2200+ members.
