In February 2011, Helayne Angelus and Mick Broekhof started LEAD Network Europe with 13 other women from CPG and the retail industry. Ten years later, the organization has 10,000 members and 10 Chapters. Our first corporate sponsor was the firm Kalypso: A Rockwell Automation Company, where Helayne and Mick were Partners. We thank George Young and Richard Mizuno for their continued support from Day One.
Mick Broekhof expresses his warm thanks to Kalypso’s first Partner Ambassador, Ana Bostan. “Ana built the foundation for diversity and inclusion at Kalypso, and in a broader sense, in the consumer goods industry in Europe. Ana was there from the first hour to offer clear advice and to roll up her sleeves to make things happen, in the true spirit of LEAD Network’s motto, doing not trying. She leaves a great legacy.”

Stefanie says: “I believe that diversity not only enhances results and is essential for innovative thinking, but it is also very beneficial to one’s own personal development and growth. I am a strong supporter of advancing diversity in the workforce. But there is still a lot that needs to be done and therefore I am proud to be a member of the LEAD Network and serve as an ambassador representing Kalypso: A Rockwell Automation Company to support LEAD’s mission to attract, retain and advance women”.
Stefanie Grace Gunia Gunia is delivering on the promise of innovation as a Manager at Kalypso: A Rockwell Automation Company. She is leading global transformations in the consumer goods industry from initiation through roll-out and is specialized in sustainable change and value delivery. Prior to Kalypso, Stefanie held marketing positions at Hunkemöller, Starbucks and Domino’s Pizza.
A grand thank you to Ana Bostan and a warm welcome to Stefanie Gunia!
