Founder & CEO, Caulipower
Gail Becker is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CAULIPOWER and Vegolutionary Foods. Her career has spanned the worlds of media, politics and business during which she has held executive roles at Warner Bros. and Edelman and served in the Clinton administration as a political appointee at the US Department of Health & Human Services.
But as a mom of two boys with celiac disease, Gail was not happy with what the industry was offering so she decided to leave her job in corporate America and do something about it. In just two years, her company is recognized as the true disruptor of one of grocery’s most stagnant categories and is now one of the bestselling frozen pizza brands and fastest-growing consumer brands in the United States.
Always a supporter of helping people find healthier food options, Gail champions making vegetable-forward nutrition accessible and delicious to all by bringing meal hacks to life. By donating a percentage of sales to the American Heart Association’s Teaching Gardens program, CAULIPOWER is able to help educate children about the role of vegetables in a healthy diet.
Gail’s philanthropy includes being a member of the Board of the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and the Board of the Friends of Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation. She has been recognized for her contributions to business and entrepreneurship, most recently by the National Association of Women Business Owners as the Los Angeles Business Owner of the Year, She Runs It (Trailblazer Working Mother of the Year Honoree) and Walmart (Supplier of the Year, Innovation).
Gail received a Master of Science in journalism from Northwestern University and a Bachelor of Science in political science from UCLA.
