CEO Series: General Mills’ Jeff Harmening on Leading a 150 Year-Old Company into its Next Century

February 27, 2018
7:00am - 9:00am
Dorsey & Whitney, 50 South 6th St Suite 1500, Minneapolis
$20

General Mills Chairman and CEO Jeff Harmening shares the journey General Mills is on to continue its tradition of serving the world by making food people love. Signup deadline February 23.

From flour to submarines, from toys to restaurants, for General Mills it has been more than 150 years of making food people love and treating the world with care. General Mills traces its origins to the banks of the Mississippi River and now is a global food leader with products enjoyed in more than 100 countries on six continents including well-known brands such as Cheerios, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Haagen-Dazs, Annie's and Cascadian Farm, to name a few.

Chairman and CEO Jeff Harmening will share how he is leading General Mills as the global company embarks on its next 150 year journey. With changing consumer eating habits and an increasingly global business, Harmening will explain how the company has reshaped its portfolio and is now the second largest manufacturer of organic food, all the while providing consumers broad choice through innovation and a consumer-first company mind-set.

Harmening, who joined General Mills in 1994 and has held leadership positions for the company in the United States and Europe, was named CEO last June. Harmening previously served as president and chief operating officer for General Mills, where he shaped strategies for the company’s four global operating segments and had oversight of Global Supply Chain, and Innovation, Technology and Quality.

In the U.S., Harmening served in various marketing roles before being named vice president of marketing for Cereal Partners Worldwide (CPW) in 2003. Headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, CPW is a 50-50 joint venture between General Mills and Nestle that manufactures and markets ready-to-eat cereal products in more than 130 countries outside of North America.

Harmening holds a bachelor’s degree from DePauw University and an MBA from Harvard. He is a Trustee of DePauw University and is on the Board of Directors at Partners in Food Solutions. He and his wife live in the Twin Cities with their two children.

Rigoletto: A Fool's Revenge

March 31, 2018
7:30pm - 10:30pm
Ordway Music Theater, 345 Washington St., Saint Paul
$40-$60

Join us for a performance of this classic opera! Generously discounted tickets available through March 16. Preceded by dinner at Sakura.

Verdi’s sinister tragedy. This time-honored tale of seduction and bitter revenge is boldly imagined in this new production. The disfigured jester Rigoletto must do everything in his power to protect his innocent daughter from the lecherous Duke of Mantua before she falls into his clutches. Brimming with rich melodies and featuring the famous aria “La donna è mobile,” Rigoletto tragically unfurls as it races toward its devastating conclusion.

Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage. This event is co-sponsored by the Yale and Harvard clubs.

Purchase your own tickets to the opera. The Minnesota Opera has reserved seats for us at the March 31, 7:30 PM performance at generous discounts:

$60 in Section B (normally $130)
$50 in Section C (normally $100)
$40 in Section D (normally $75)

Click the RSVP button for details about purchasing tickets and RSVPing for the preceding dinner.

Become a TCAN Member

Interested alumni organizations must meet each of the requirements listed below to qualify for membership in TCAN. All new applications are reviewed by the TCAN membership board. To learn more about our association or to request affiliation, please contact us.

New to the area? We invite interested alumni to contact their local affiliated clubs for membership and to receive upcoming TCAN event notifications. You're also invited to join our TCAN LinkedIn Group.

01/04

Nationally Ranked

We believe that the overall ranking number is a sufficient surrogate for a measure of quality. Therefore the college or university must have been nationally ranked as a top‐50 college or university, according to U.S. News and World Report, within each of the last three years.

02/04

Located Outside of Minnesota

TCAN was founded as a support group for university alumni organizations from colleges located primarily outside the Midwest. A geographical eligibility criterion ensures that alumni groups with a significant membership base will not dominate TCAN events.

03/04

Undergrad Population of Less than 10,000

We believe that the size of a college's undergraduate program offers a surrogate measure of not only the quality of the school, but also the type of cultural experience that embodies a program of liberal arts education and instills a love of learning.

04/04

Alumni Org. must be a Bona Fide Club

We feel it is important that all member clubs are sanctioned, well‐established, and able to contribute to the Network upon admission. Therefore all organizations seeking membership must typically have at least 10 members and 2 years of operating history.
