Michele Fleuranges Parker Mg Dir - Black Deer Ventures My primary experience (and passion) has been in the financial services industry, to include: recruiting, commercial lending and credit analysis, securities trading and sales, leveraged buyout syndications, and retirement protection (annuities) and life insurance. My expertise includes all aspects of sales and new business development, with a strong emphasis in diverse candidate sourcing and selection, interviewing techniques and relationship management. Utilizing my well-developed networking skills, I often can find the "unique, difficult to find" candidate or buyer. Similarly, during the period of heightened leveraged buyout deals in the billions of dollars, I was able to identify the loan participation partners in the US and overseas banking markets because of my ability to explain the complexities of the deal, assist with the credit analysis and provide insights to the deals which were overlooked yet key to the sale. A win-win for all parties!

Susan Cameron President and CEO, Reynolds American Inc. Susan has served as president and CEO of Reynolds American Inc. (RAI) since May 1, 2014. It’s a job she’s quite comfortable in, however, since she also served as chairman and CEO of RAI from 2004 – 2011, when she retired. Or so she thought. In 2013, the RAI board of directors asked Susan to return to the board, as they believed her perspective and industry relationships would be of great value in ongoing negotiations to acquire Lorillard, Inc. Ultimately, the board asked Susan to return to the CEO role in May 2014 to see through the acquisition and subsequent integration. When RAI acquired Lorillard, Inc. for about $29 billion in 2015, it was reported to be the largest acquisition undertaken by a female CEO.

Tasha Kersey Aoeh Talent Management - Diversity & Inclusion Manager at JetBlue Airways Does culture really eat strategy for breakfast? It’s debatable. However, it is clear that both culture and strategy matter. Diversity and inclusion can effectively walk the tightrope of strategy and culture - the result, optimal outcomes. Unfortunately, business and diversity strategies are rarely aligned in a deliberate manner to positively affect company performance. I am committed to making this a more common occurrence. I consider myself a diversity generalist. Specific specialties include: Diverse Talent Management, Workforce Planning, Employee Resource / Affinity Groups, Diversity Councils, Cultural Competence, Diversity Training, Diversity Strategy, Data Analysis, HRIS, Partner Programs, Executive Communications, and Relationship Management.
