A new podcast is live — “The Women’s Retail Collective Podcast: 7-Eleven SVP And CAO Alicia Howell”
Alicia Howell is well-known for her position as Chief Accounting Officer at 7-Eleven, but, after hearing this podcast, you’ll see the critical role she plays in helping innovation teams get the financial backing and continued support to keep their industry-first concepts coming to market.
In this podcast Alicia shares her career journey, what it takes to manage the books of thousands of 7-Eleven franchisees, plus the song she puts on in the car to get her motivated to come to work every morning.
Be careful out there.
