As VP of Corporate Social Responsibility at Campbell’s, an Intelex client, Stangis has championed environmental and social responsibility and in three short years has made Campbell’s a leader in CSR, having cultivated an environment of collaboration within the company.

All of a sudden it’s a tool and not an obstacle. And that’s really the goal.”
