Hello Readers,

Summer is here! As you gear up for any trips this season, we bring you Issue No. 6 of the magazine to read wherever you might be traveling. A good leader never stops learning, so in this issue we have included 11 featured executives who share a wide range of roles, experiences and perspectives.

Here are a few highlights:

Jo Stoner, SVP of Global HR at Informatica Corp., shares her story of innovation and change within her global HR department.

CFO of The Body Shop – North America, Bert Smith, explains how his approach of creating relationships with team members and individual stores has led to success.

Mary Garceau, General Counsel at Thirty-One Gifts, advises others to not be afraid to take risks and provides examples of how she brought new processes to the company with her arrival.

This issue also includes three contributors who, as experts in their field, have volunteered to share words of wisdom. Included is Jeanne Bliss, who shares tips on how to unite your company in customer-focused annual planning. Because of the story depth, we decided to break this into a three-part series that you will see in the next three issues of Forefront.

We cannot thank you enough for your readership and support as our magazine grows! We have a few new things we will be introducing over the next couple of months, so be sure to follow along with us on the web and on our just-rolled-out blog.

– The Forefront magazine staff
