Taste Radio Ep. 97: REBBL CEO O’Loughlin: Leadership Guided By Constant Experimentation, Compassion
< 1 day ago
Sheryl O’Loughlin is ready for a change.
It’s not that O'Loughlin, the CEO of adaptogenic beverage brand REBBL, doesn’t love her current job; since joining the company in 2015, she’s embraced the role, the company and its passionate commitment to social responsibility. Rather, she believes that a business’ ability to constantly evolve and to take a progressive approach to the times at hand can ultimately spell the difference between success or failure.
In an interview included in this episode of Taste Radio, O'Loughlin noted, “it’s really a matter of us thinking about the market, or even our companies as a constant experimentation to see what works and what doesn’t work versus thinking about it as this is the decision we’ve made and we’re done.”
