A pioneer of the artisanal ice cream movement, Jeni Britton Bauer is an entrepreneur and creative visionary who has made us think differently about America’s favorite dessert. With talent, hustle and guts – and radical transparency – she thrived throughout a crisis that could have bankrupted the company. Today, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is a Certified B Corporation with 41 scoop shops across 10 cites and is sold online and in top grocery stores nationwide. Join the Executives’ Club of Chicago as we welcome Jeni in conversation with Monica Eng, WBEZ’s award-winning food reporter. Jeni will discuss, among other things, when she knew it was time to hire a CEO for her growing company and what she sees as the recipe for a successful founder/CEO relationship.
