Lorna Davis is the Senior Advisor to Emmanuel Faber, CEO of Danone, and is a Global Ambassador for the B Corp movement.
Lorna has lived and worked in seven countries across five continents and has been a president of large, multinational consumer goods companies for 20 years at Danone, Kraft and Mondelez.
Lorna was born and educated in South Africa and began her career in Marketing at Unilever. She has held various senior business and marketing positions in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, France, the UK, China and the USA.
In 2015, Lorna moved to France to lead the next phase of the journey to purpose for Danone. After Danone’s acquisition of White Wave Foods in 2017, she moved to the US to become CEO and Chairwoman of DanoneWave. In that capacity, she established that $6 billion entity as a Public Benefit Corporation, and set it on the path to become a certified B Corporation. That entity, now called Danone North America, achieved B Corp certification in April 2018, and is now the largest B Corp in the world.
On behalf of Danone, Lorna has now joined B-Lab, the not for profit that supports the B Corporation movement on an assignment to support the journey of large multinationals on the path to using business as a force of good.
Lorna served on the board of Electrolux for six years and is a member of the Social Mission Board of Seventh Generation, the sustainable cleaning products company now owned by Unilever. Lorna is also an advisor to Radicle Impact, an investment fund dedicated to businesses that combine financial impact and meaningful social change.
