As the president and CEO, Cindy Hallberlin works with the Good360 staff and board of directors to define and direct the vision and mission of the world’s largest online donation marketplace. Under her leadership she has grown the organization to a network of over 35,000 charities that receive more than $300 million worth of goods each year. Prior to joining Good360, Cindy served as the Chief Ethics, Diversity and Accountability Officer with U.S. Foods. She possesses nearly 30 years of experience in labor and employment law, alternative dispute resolution, ethics and compliance, and corporate social responsibility.
Throughout her career, Cindy has organized workplace teams to successfully tackle tough business challenges. At the US Postal Service, Cindy addressed a backlog of 39,000 employment discrimination complaints by developing the award-winning REDRESS mediation program, which successfully resolved more than 80 percent of discrimination claims and resulted in $60 million in cost avoidance. Soon after, she became the Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer at U.S. Foods following a $1 billion fraud. In this role, she contributed to the cultural transformation of U.S. Foods by developing exceptional ethics training programs, a risk assessment strategy and a model code of conduct. All of these initiatives helped resolve the company’s legal problems which were impeding its reputation and profitability. In 2008, she developed U.S. Foods' first nationwide corporate philanthropy program, Full Plates, Full Lives, which raised more than $4 million in cash and product donations to help eradicate hunger in the United States.
Cindy's leadership was noted in the recently published Getting Innovation Right by Seth Kahan – a new book focusing on how leaders leverage inflection points to drive success. Cindy has also been honored with a 2013 SmartCEO Brava! Award celebrating top female CEOs who combine their irrepressible entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for giving back to the community.
