Katherine M. Gehl is a business leader, entrepreneur, and political innovation activist. Katherine was president and CEO of Gehl Foods, Inc., high tech food manufacturing company in Wisconsin, where she led an aggressive and transformational growth strategy. In 2015, Katherine sold the company—in part to be able to dedicate more time to political reform. Over the past decade, Katherine has focused on the urgent need for non-partisan political innovation and reform on both state and national levels. In 2016, Katherine invited Michael Porter from Harvard Business School to join her in applying Michael’s tools for understanding industry competition to politics. Together, they co-authored research and analysis on our political system titled, “Why Competition in the Politics Industry is Failing America.” Today, Katherine will tell us about this exciting work.
