Jodi Harris Ab Inbev

Miguel Patricio, CEO at Kraft Heinz and Jodi Harris, Global VP Marketing, Culture and Capabilities at AbInBev sat down with IRG Founder Frank van den Driest for a ‘virtual fireside chat’ about culture, capabilty, and empathic leadership. Here are a few quotes from the conversation. Miguel Patricio is the Chief Executive Officer of The Kraft Heinz Company. Prior to Kraft Heinz, Miguel spent 20+ years at Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), where he served as part of the Executive Leadership team in various positions, driving organic growth and industry-leading margins. Miguel was the Global Chief Marketing Officer at AB InBev from 2012-2018. In this role, he developed and implemented a strategic playbook for global brands Corona, Budweiser and Stella Artois, accelerating organic sales growth which represented more than one-third of AB InBev’s organic growth and accounted for more than 20 percent of AB InBev’s 2018 year-end global revenues. Prior to that, he was AB InBev’s President of Asia Pacific from 2008 to 2012 and President of North America from 2006 to 2008. Before his career at AB InBev, Miguel held a variety of leadership positions at other global consumer packaged goods companies including Philip Morris, The Coca-Cola Company and Johnson & Johnson. He holds a degree in Business Administration from Fundacao Getulio Vargas in São Paulo. “I think, in a consumer goods company, marketing is a must for any CMO to become a CEO. It is the natural path. Because marketing is the part of the company that really thinks and understands the future, that sets and drives the strategy of the company. Marketing is a big part of the work of a CEO in a CPG company. Even at ABI, for a long time, I was the only person with a marketing background on the leadership team. Today, half of the leadership team members all are from marketing. I think this has been an evolution.”

Jodi Harris: “Interestingly, a lot of changes in consumer behavior that we’re seeing right now had already been slowly changing over the past few years. Of course, many more new behaviors are emerging as well. There are a couple that I can talk about. One is how people are socializing – we’re seeing many more intimate gatherings; people are meeting one-on-one even on Zoom or the Houseparty app. The level and depth of conversation that they’re having is much more intimate and meaningful, and we’re trying to understand the role that we can play in bringing people together, albeit at a distance.”

“We’re also monitoring very closely what’s going to happen in bars and restaurants. As governments and cities are starting to reopen, people are very hesitant to go back to socializing like they once did, especially in massive parties and clubbing. And we’re actually seeing a lot of that behavior being mimicked at home. In China, there’s a new phenomenon called e-clubbing. At ABI, we’re highlighting different DJs and people are gathering and drinking responsibly. So, we’re seeing smart drinking become a really big space for us to continue championing. We’ve taken that live-streaming idea and we’ve now scaled it across several of the other markets. In Brazil, we have a brand called Brahma, which basically broke the internet a couple of weeks ago because of a live-streaming event that they hosted by tapping into nostalgic music artists and acts and just giving people a reason to reconnect.”
Jodi Harris is vice president of consumer strategy & insights for Anheuser-Busch, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev. In her role, Jodi leads all aspects of U.S. consumer-centric strategy across marketing and sales for a broad portfolio of brands – most notably America’s best-selling beer, Bud Light, and iconic King of Beers, Budweiser – as well Michelob ULTRA, Stella Artois, Busch, Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita, Goose Island, Estrella Jalisco and a host of regional brands. Frank van den Driest: “Jodi, How do you think consumer behavior will change after COVID-19 and how will that impact your business? What insights and strategic adjustments have you done so far?” Frank van den Driest: “During your stint at ABI, did you pave the way? Were you a role model for the board to see that we need more marketers on our boards? Or was it more that you inspired more marketers to strive towards becoming board members?”

Frank van den Driest: “I’m particularly pleased to welcome not one, but two guests for this session. Miguel, how do you see yourself as a leader? I’m asking because the trajectory that you made: climbing the ranks in marketing – being the CMO of the world’s largest beer company to becoming the CEO of the Kraft Heinz group – is inspiring to our viewers and to many CMOs. What is your secret sauce?”
Miguel Patricio: “I think both. I inspired the board, and I encouraged my people to have the ambition to get there. I think the company has really evolved. Another sign of that, and something I feel proud of, is that 10 years ago, we were afraid of creativity. ABI was a very efficient company, but being efficient is the opposite of being creative. Because to be creative, you have to take risks. We were risk-averse and so we launched a big program on creativity, which really helped us to progress. Today, there’s all these misunderstandings about our culture. But the truth is, according to Cannes, the number three company in creativity in the world is ABI. Number one is Burger King and number two is Nike. But that didn’t happen overnight. Five years ago, ABI was not even in the rankings. Now my next battle is to put Kraft there as well.”Miguel Patricio: “I think it is hard to talk about ourselves as ‘leaders’ but I will try to answer the second part of your question, which is unfortunately related to the fact that we don’t have too many CEOs that come from the marketing part of the business. I don’t know why that is. The first thing you need, of course, is ambition. But on top of ambition, it’s really about believing that marketing is a key part of the business and being business-driven. Before becoming CEO, I was the head of two very important zones, North America and the Asia Pacific, and before that I was in marketing. But I wanted to manage a business and a zone and that gave me the experience to manage a big business and the necessary qualifications to become a CEO one day.”

Started by an Executive Producer with a past marketing/branding career at Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo and General Mills, the network boasts nearly 1 million listens in the US.

Anheuser-Busch has responded quickly to the Coronavirus—from using manufacturing facilities to make hand sanitizers and face shields, as well as redirecting sports and entertainment marketing funds to the American Red Cross. Plus, Bud’s “One Team” commercial emotionally used the names of sports teams to celebrate medical personnel, delivery people and ordinary Americans staying-at-home. The company has since adapted it to other markets using local beers and other national teams.

The general public, who are usually individual investors, hold a 29% stake in Anheuser-Busch InBev. While this group can’t necessarily call the shots, it can certainly have a real influence on how the company is run.While studying institutional ownership for a company can add value to your research, it is also a good practice to research analyst recommendations to get a deeper understand of a stock’s expected performance. There are a reasonable number of analysts covering the stock, so it might be useful to find out their aggregate view on the future.NB: Figures in this article are calculated using data from the last twelve months, which refer to the 12-month period ending on the last date of the month the financial statement is dated.

While the precise definition of an insider can be subjective, almost everyone considers board members to be insiders. Management ultimately answers to the board. However, it is not uncommon for managers to be executive board members, especially if they are a founder or the CEO.

Where is Jodi Arias now?
Arias is serving a life sentence in the Perryville state women’s prison in Goodyear, Arizona and is not eligible for release.
We can see that Private Companies own 42%, of the shares on issue. Private companies may be related parties. Sometimes insiders have an interest in a public company through a holding in a private company, rather than in their own capacity as an individual. While it’s hard to draw any broad stroke conclusions, it is worth noting as an area for further research.

Who is Jodi Harris?

Most consider insider ownership a positive because it can indicate the board is well aligned with other shareholders. However, on some occasions too much power is concentrated within this group.To make our study more interesting, we found that the top 3 shareholders have a majority ownership in the company, meaning that they are powerful enough to influence the decisions of the company.

Institutional investors commonly compare their own returns to the returns of a commonly followed index. So they generally do consider buying larger companies that are included in the relevant benchmark index.To get a sense of who is truly in control of Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV (EBR:ABI), it is important to understand the ownership structure of the business. And the group that holds the biggest piece of the pie are private companies with 42% ownership. In other words, the group stands to gain the most (or lose the most) from their investment into the company.Anheuser-Busch InBev already has institutions on the share registry. Indeed, they own a respectable stake in the company. This implies the analysts working for those institutions have looked at the stock and they like it. But just like anyone else, they could be wrong. When multiple institutions own a stock, there’s always a risk that they are in a ‘crowded trade’. When such a trade goes wrong, multiple parties may compete to sell stock fast. This risk is higher in a company without a history of growth. You can see Anheuser-Busch InBev’s historic earnings and revenue below, but keep in mind there’s always more to the story.

It appears to us that public companies own 10.0% of Anheuser-Busch InBev. It’s hard to say for sure but this suggests they have entwined business interests. This might be a strategic stake, so it’s worth watching this space for changes in ownership.

In this sort of situation, it can be more interesting to see if those insiders have been buying or selling.

As global vice president of marketing culture & capabilities, Jodi was instrumental in driving transformational change within AB InBev (ABI). Her passion for learning and creativity innovated the brand through reative excellence, colleague engagement and industry leadership during her tenure. She always put people first and encouraged ABI to become more of a human business. Jodi inspired all around her that creativity can make the world a better place and great ideas can come from anywhere. Jodi believed that although ABI was a global company, it had strong ties to local communities and a responsibility to support people. Within the first 90 days of the COVID-19 Pandemic, she spearheaded 100 new initiatives to help people around the world. One initiative Jodi championed was the recently launched “Together for a Better World,” a global ideas platform to support their communities and partners through the challenging times of the pandemic. ABI’s brand purpose of “bringing people together for a better world” was something Jodi lived each and every day. She also was a champion of AB InBev’s “Women in Beer” employee resource group, which includes programming and mentoring from women at all levels of the organization. Jodi was a great mentor because she was such an honest and generous person herself. She helped make those around her better with her presence and we are a better agency at FCB from knowing her as our client and dear friend. Although Jodi passed away earlier this year, she leaves behind an incredible legacy and is most deserving of the 2022 ACT Champion for Good Award.
The Exon 20 Group is very proud that renowned NASCAR race car driver Kevin Harvick drove his specially outfitted Anheuser Busch-sponsored car with this wonderful logo in memory of Jodi on Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022. He and Jodi, according to their friends, had “potent chemistry” and an instant connection upon meeting in September 2006. “She was really excited about the relationship. She loved how funny he was, how much fun they would have together,” Alexander’s friend Sky Lovingier Hughes told ABC News. The two dated long-distance (she lived in Palm Desert, California), and early on, friends of the couple expressed concerns early on their relationship.

Arias is serving a life sentence in the Perryville state women’s prison in Goodyear, Arizona and is not eligible for release. Based on public records, PEOPLE reports that she is being held in a medium-low “custody class” security wing of the prison.
Prior to Arias’ sentencing, she expressed remorse. “To this day, I can’t believe that I was capable of doing something that terrible,” she said. “I’m truly disgusted and repulsed with myself. I’m horrified because of what I did, and I wish there was some way I could take it back.”In addition, their friends noticed troubling behavior when they hung out together — specifically, Arias’ possessive qualities. “She just had to sit right by him. She didn’t appreciate when he was talking to another female,” Alexander’s friend Clancy Talbot told the outlet.

Meanwhile, she asked an appeals court to overturn her conviction and sentence in May 2018. She argued that the widespread publicity, mass media attention and a prosecutor’s alleged misconduct deprived her of a fair trial and and impartial jury. Her attempt was unsuccessful.
“I started seeing things that were just disturbing,” Lovingier Hughes told 20/20. “I said, ‘Travis, I’m afraid we’re gonna find you chopped up in her freezer.’ … From very early on, she was completely obsessed with him.””Coverage of the trial took on some of the aspects of a soap opera” and ratings sky-rocketed, reported the New York Times live from the Arizona grounds.Authorities later learned that the bloody prints belonged to both Alexander and Arias, prompting Flores and police arrest her in California. During the investigation, it was learned that a .25-caliber gun was missing from Arias’ grandparents’ home. Upon meeting, they connected instantly. “She’s beautiful. She’s friendly, has long, blonde hair. Cute figure. She was very sweet,” Lovingier Hughes told the outlet of Arias. “She seemed to like him as much as he liked her.” A second jury that was seated in October 2014 also struggled to settle on a punishment and ended up deadlocked as well. According to state law, Arias could not be tried again and was instead sentenced to life in prison.According to the friend, Alexander wanted to marry her. “He tells me that he’s found his wife and this is the girl that he wants to marry,” Lovingier Hughes told ABC News. However, his devout Mormon faith (which she did not share) placed challenges on their sexual relationship.

Five months after they began dating, Arias and Alexander’s relationship appeared to end — however, she moved from Palm Desert to Mesa (where Alexander lived) in the wake of their split. She would show up unexpectedly to his house on occasion and friends thought her behavior was suspicious.At age 11, Alexander moved in with his paternal grandparents. His seven siblings joined him in the move after the death of their father — who died on Travis’ 20th birthday in a car accident — in July 1997.

Arias (who was 34 at the time) was found guilty of the first-degree murder of Alexander in 2013, but when the jury that convicted her could not decide on whether she deserved the death penalty, a mistrial was declared.Mesa Police detective Esteban Flores was on the scene where Alexander was found dead. He was also the person Arias called upon learning the news; she told Flores that on the day her ex was killed, she was on her way to Utah to visit a new love interest.

What happened to Ashley Harris?
Harris’ autopsy pointed to a rage killing. A medical examiner found blunt force trauma to her face and head and trauma related to strangulation on her neck and throat, according to the Amarillo Globe-News. “This was somebody who killed her out of anger.
Currently, she is assigned to work as an aide in the library, a duty she appears to have held since July 2018. Previously, she was in the “store warehouse” between 2017-2018 and worked as a porter in 2016.

Investigators say that Arias stabbed Alexander almost 30 times, slit his throat and shot him in the head at his Mesa home. Arias — who pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder — was held behind bars for over four years before the start of her criminal trial on Jan. 2, 2013.

(A judge had the option of sentencing her to life with or without parole, according to The Arizona Republic.) Meanwhile, friends told police that they believed Arias to be “a stalker” and should be a suspect, despite Arias saying she had an alibi that day. She agreed to be fingerprinted, which ended up linking her to the scene. While “college was not for him,” Alexander aspired to be a motivational speaker and held various jobs early in his career, like in telemarketing and retail sales. He was also a devout Mormon. He traveled around, but ultimately settled in Mesa, Arizona. The four-month-long murder trial convicting Jodi Arias for the 2008 murder of her ex-boyfriend in Mesa, Arizona came to an end on May 8, 2013. It was considered one of the biggest spectacle trials to take place since the acquittal of O.J. Simpson. In addition to her sentence, an Arizona judge ordered Arias to pay $32,000 to the family of her victim, Alexander. The money would help his family offset trial travel expenses such as airfare and lodging.The prosecution of Arias for the murder of her boyfriend riveted the nation throughout the proceedings and in the years that followed her sentencing on April 13, 2015. Movies, books, podcasts and documentaries were made in its wake, some of which include first-hand accounts from friends and family close to the players involved.

The trial was sensational, drawing crowds and tremendous amounts of media attention — including live television, cable coverage and streaming — to the Maricopa County Superior Court the day the verdict was reached.
The crime scene, according to authorities who responded, was gory. Police found a bloody handprint outside of Alexander’s bedroom and long brown hairs on the floor and walls of the bathroom. Plus, a camera was found in the home’s washing machine — which according to Flores, had photographs of Alexander and Arias timestamped from the day of the murder.Travis Alexander was a California native born in the city of Riverside to Gary David Alexander and Pamela Elizabeth Morgan Alexander, along with siblings Gary Alexander, Dennis “Greg” Alexander, Tanisha Sorenson, Samantha Alexander, Hillary Wilcox, Steven Alexander, and Allie Iglesias.

According to the friends, Arias had stalker-like qualities. She’d listen in on conversations and read through his text messages on his phone. Once, Lovingier Hughes recalled, she got a frightening, “cold” feeling that that Arias was outside their closed door; when Alexander opened the door to check, he found Arias standing on the other side with an “evil” look on her face. “There was a rage in her eyes,” Lovingier Hughes’ husband Chris said.While behind bars, Arias was involved in one disciplinary action in February 2016. It was classified as “disrespect to staff,” according to the public records.

What happened to Jodi Harris?
Harris, who was also known as a champion of broader industry causes, died on May 2 from lung cancer.
Jodi Arias, the ex-girlfriend and murderer of Travis Alexander, was an aspiring photographer who met Alexander at a company convention in Las Vegas in September 2006. She was looking for opportunities with a network marketing company called Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc., reported ABC News.

Tragically, they were killed right before one such performance. They had arrived at a village called Mehsampur by car, and when they exited their vehicle a gang of unknown youths fatally wounded the couple and shot other members of the group as well on 8 March 1988.Their death remains shrouded in mystery. Many conspiracy theories have developed over the years – some theorise that Amarjyot’s family killed them because of their inter-caste marriage while others wonder if it was a professional rival? With the success of the film, here’s a look at the life of the singing duo Chamkila and Amarjyot, who were one of most influential Punjabi folk singers of all time: Not much is known about Amarjyot, except that she was previously married and left the marriage to pursue a career in singing. She later married Chamkila, and their pairing on stage worked like magic.They sang in free, open-air concerts (known as Akhade in Punjabi) around Punjab. Sometimes, to simply test their new songs in view of the response they would receive from the audience.

Although the film received a slow start in India, it has managed to captivate the overseas audience, as is evident from the film’s collection in the US. As per Deadline, the movie earned a whopping USD 734,000.Chamkila and Amarjyot’s music was, in more ways than one, revolutionary for its time. And that will remain their legacy – an incredible feat for two artistes who sang for less than a decade.In addition to being a singer, he was known to write his own songs. His popular hit songs include ‘Pehle Lalkare Naal’ and his devotional songs ‘Baba Tera Nankana’ and ‘Talwar Main Kalgidhar Di’. Moreover, his song ‘Jatt Di Dushmani’ was recorded by many Punjabi artists, although he never recorded it himself.

Amberdeep Singh’s film Jodi is a musical drama starring Diljit Dosanjh and Nimrat Khaira as two artists who set out to redefine the Punjabi folk music scene in the 1980s. Their love story is based on the real-life couple, Amar Singh Chamkila and Amarjyot Kaur.

Tess left Drover’s for Melbourne with her mother when she was five years old, after her parents’ marriage ended.Alex’s bad relationship with his father Harry leads him to leave for the city where he meets Fiona Webb (Michelle Langstone) and they get engaged within days. He marries Fiona, a city girl from a wealthy family. Their marriage soon ends badly, with Fiona believing that Alex is in love with Stevie. Though they don’t immediately begin a relationship, Alex and Stevie eventually marry. After the wedding and honeymoon, Alex is only seen by videophone from Argentina until the last episode of season 7, when he returns to Killarney to surprise Stevie and spend Christmas together. Alex dies early in season 8, after being crushed by a large tree branch. Stevie gives birth shortly after, and names the baby Alexander ‘Xander’ Hall Ryan (Zayne and Eddison How; Ashton and Tate Hutchings; Josh Helman). He later returns as Matt Bosnich, his real name, when it is presumed safe for him, and they rekindle their relationship. Still another hitman finds him, and it appears that Jodi and Matt die in an explosion. Later, mostly due to Kate’s interference and tenacity, the Drover’s girls and Killarney boys are told that they used the explosion to fake their deaths so that Matt could be free of his pursuers. After saying goodbye to her friends and family on Drover’s, Jodi leaves with him. Matt is not seen again in the series, although Jodi comes back in the series finale with news that they are married and she is pregnant with his baby. The criminals who had been after them are in jail, and they can safely return to Drover’s to have and raise their baby. After Claire dies in a car accident returning home from buying party supplies with Tess and Charlotte, Tess becomes the sole owner of Drover’s Run. She hires Stevie Hall, an old rodeo friend of Claire and Alex, as overseer to help her manage the property. When Peter Johnson files for custody of Charlotte, his daughter with Claire, Tess initially fights it but ultimately relents and lets Peter and his wife have full custody. Peter allows Charlotte to visit her aunt at Drover’s, including her godfather Alex at Killarney, often.Claire is the oldest child of John ‘Jack’ M. McLeod (Anthony Hayes; Troy Gray). She was born on Drover’s Run, in 1973, to Jack and his first wife, Prudence ‘Prue’ McLeod (Sarah Enright). Prue died while giving birth to a stillborn son, Adam John McLeod, in 1975. Jack would later marry Ruth Silverman, who gave birth to Tess Silverman McLeod. When their marriage ended, Ruth took Tess to live in Melbourne, leaving Jack to raise Claire alone. Claire and Tess would not see each other again until after their father died, almost twenty years later. Kate is a former classmate of Jodi’s. She first appears in the series when Jodi decides to go to Melbourne with Meg, leaving a job vacancy. Though Jodi changes her mind at the last minute and stays on the farm, Kate keeps her new position, and soon they are back being best friends like they used to be in school. Kate is organized and goal-oriented, often referring to her “5-year plan”. She brings quite the organization and knowledge to Drover’s, but occasionally she has the other farmhands rolling their eyes. Tess never saw her father again, and only returns to Drover’s after his death nearly twenty years later. Tess and Claire initially clash over the future of Drover’s Run. Tess considers selling her share and remaining in the city, but later decides to stay on to help run the farm. She has not had a true home since her mother died from cancer, and she wants to stay and rekindle her relationship with her sister.She attempts to start a horse breeding program on Drover’s with Peter Johnson (Rodger Corser), the local representative of Australian Bloodlines. They begin a romantic relationship while working together, which ends when Claire finds out that Peter is married and has a family in Queensland. They reunite briefly, which results in Claire getting pregnant. She gives birth to a daughter, Charlotte Prudence McLeod (Sarah and Alisha Hart; Brooke, Kaitlyn and Thalia Stacy-Clark; Dana Miltins), in a shed on Drover’s Run. Before Claire decides on a name, the baby is affectionately called ‘BOM’, for Baby of McLeod.Not long after the baby was born, Claire and Alex Ryan begin a relationship, with Alex planning to propose to her during a party. Claire, Tess, and baby Charlotte are returning from town with party supplies when their ute hits a pothole and Claire loses control of the vehicle, and coming to a stop with its front wheels dangling over the edge of a cliff. Tess is able to get out and get Charlotte to safety, but cannot get Claire’s door open before the ute starts to slide. It goes over the cliff and into the canyon, killing Claire. Throughout the series several main, recurring, or guest characters have lost their spouse: Beth Martin (Carmel Johnson), Alex Ryan, Dave Brewer, Jasmine McLeod (Anna Torv), Matt Bosnich/Rob Shelton, Stevie Hall-Ryan, Greg Hope (Matt Passmore), Daniel Lewis (Sandy Winton). In season 3, Alex discovers that Harry Ryan is not his biological father. His mother, Liz, had a brief relationship with married Bryce Redstaff (John Stanton) that resulted in pregnancy, but soon she married Harry Ryan and allowed him to believe that the baby was his. Alex’s true paternity leads to the breakup of Harry and Liz’s marriage, with Liz leaving Killarney.
