BevNET Live: Amy Taylor, Red Bull VP/GM, Joins High-Powered Final Panel
May 20, 2013 by Jeffrey Klineman
Amy Taylor, the VP/GM, Red Bull North America East, will add her views and observations to a panel on the role of culture at successful entrepreneurial beverage companies during this summer’s BevNET Live event.
Ms. Taylor, who was previously VP Marketing, Red Bull North America, was a featured speaker at BevNET Live in December, 2011, discussing the role of earned media in brand building.
During the summer’s BevNET Live, taking place on June 4 and 5 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, Ms. Taylor will join Vita Coco CEO Michael Kirban, Food Should Taste Good founder Peter Lescoe, and Sambazon CMO Greg Fleishman in the event’s final panel — a conversation on the roles that a distinct culture can have on its ability to grow and thrive.
With more than 8,000 employees, Red Bull is by far the largest and best established company represented on the panel. But the Red Bull culture remains infused with a highly entrepreneurial and experimental spirit and the company’s ethos continues to be expressed via its risk-taking marketing partnerships, which support a mission to “give wings to people and ideas.” The idea that it can continue to do so even at such a large scale is one that will undoubtedly be cited as an inspirational example — and operational lesson — throughout the discussion.
BevNET is delighted to welcome Ms. Taylor back to the BevNET Live event to further boost the aims and ideas of BevNET’s community of entrepreneurs.
