“Tom Bené is a role model for men who champion women and a true asset to the WFF community. From his strategic thinking and clear vision of WFF’s future, to bringing over 300 plus women and men to Conference and the LDWs in 2016, Tom turned Houston into a winning market for WFF with sheer determination. Additionally, Tom played an integral role in our 2017 bold move to engage an alliance between WFF and McKinsey & Company, a game-changing collaboration that will set the groundwork for years of enhanced development opportunities. Tom has infused WFF as a primary pillar for development and inspiration for leaders at Sysco and beyond.”
