On Thursday, September 22, the Broad College of Business launched its year-long C-Suite Speaker Series, welcoming alumnus Jeff Turnas, CEO of 365 by Whole Foods to campus.
Turnas graduated from Broad in 1995, and has since taken his food distribution and management career from Detroit to the U.K., and now resides in Austin, Texas. He has been with Whole Foods over 20 years, and spearheaded the high-end grocer’s newest subsidiary, 365 by Whole Foods, which launched in the spring of 2016.
