Event Information

Join us November 20 as we continue the Fast Forward series with a conversation between host Marla Beck, CEO and co-founder of Bluemercury, and Julie Smolyanksy, President and CEO of Lifeway Foods (NYSE:LWAY). Julie Smolyansky became the youngest female CEO of a publicly held firm when she took over Lifeway Foods in 2002 at the age of 27. 

Since then, Julie has continued the company's growth trajectory with creative product development and marketing, bringing Kefir, an Eastern European product into the U.S. mainstream and boosting annual company revenues to over $100 million in 2018 from $12 million when she took over. 

The popular Fast Forward series welcomes visionary women leaders to join Marla Beck in conversation about their experiences, ongoing projects, and ideas for the future. These events include a light lunch, with a $10 donation going towards supporting Halcyon's programming.
