Denise Morrison, first female President and CEO of Campbell Soup Company


"Some of the best advice I’ve ever received and applied in my career came from my mother. When I was growing up in New Jersey in the 1950s and 1960s, my mom told me and my three sisters that 'Ambition is a part of femininity.' Her advice inspired me at an early age to aim high and pursue my dream of entering the business world and become the CEO of a great company, at a time women were virtually invisible in the C-suite and corporate board rooms.”

Denise was not the only one of her sisters for whom that advice was meaningful. One sister now serves as Chairman & CEO of Frontier Communication, a second is Regional Vice President of Sales at Expedia, and a third is both a championship level horseback rider and former Senior VP of Sales at AT&T.
