Karen Kelley, President and COO of Sweetgreen
“One of the best pieces of advice I received was ‘always think about how to win the war not every battle.’ It made me think more deeply about what I was really trying to accomplish with every interaction. In practice, it enhanced my ability to influence others.”
With a background at frozen yogurt favorite Pinkberry and popular hair salon chain DryBar, her brand expertise was essential to helping @sweetgreen grow. After joining in 2013, Karen helped scale the chain to bring their healthy and locally sourced menu to 64 stores across 7 states and Washington DC.
