BioCalifornia Insights Series: Never Say Impossible
Join us for this special BioCalifornia meeting as we engage in a fireside chat with David Lee, COO of Impossible Foods.
Prior to Impossible Foods, David Lee was the Chief Financial Officer of Zynga, a $2 billion public company (Ticker ZNGA), where he led the company’s finance, accounting, and corporate development and human resources organizations. During his tenure of just under two years, David helped transform Zynga into a mobile growth company, increasing mobile penetration from 36% to 69%, resulting in over 80% year-on-year growth in mobile in 2014.
Prior to Zynga, Lee served as the Senior Vice President of Enterprise Finance for Best Buy, where he was responsible for leading the company’s corporate strategy, financial planning and analysis and treasury teams. During his time Best buy was one of the top five fastest rising S&P equities.
Before joining Best Buy, Lee spent more than eight years at Del Monte Foods where he held several leadership positions across marketing, strategy, finance and general management including Senior Vice President of Strategy, where he oversaw corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions, transformation and corporate affairs and Senior Vice President of Consumer Products. During this time, Del Monte Foods rapidly transformed and ultimately delivered significant shareholder value to its public investors in the sale of the company to private equity.
