Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Caulipower and Vegolutionary Foods

Gail Becker began her career as a broadcast journalist, worked in politics/government and spent years as a senior executive in corporate America.

The passing of her father led her to follow in his entrepreneurial footsteps. As a mother of two sons with Celiac disease, she grew frustrated with the gluten-free industry and decided to do something about it. So she left her job and created CAULIPOWER.

At Edelman, Becker served as President of Strategic Partnerships and Global Integration. She began as GM of the LA office, which she grew to the market's largest, served as Western Region President and as Chair of Canada & Latin America, where she tripled revenue. Becker also served as Chair of Edelman’s Global Women’s Executive Network (GWEN), overseeing the company’s effort to increase the number of women at the senior-most levels of the firm.

Prior, Becker served as VP of communications at Warner Home Entertainment, where she spearheaded the global public relations launch of the DVD format on behalf of Warner Bros. and Time Warner, leaders in development of the technology.

Becker also worked as a political appointment at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services during the first Clinton Administration and served as a member of the national press staff and as the primary on-site satellite producer for candidates Clinton and Gore during their ’92 presidential campaign.

Becker began her career as an on-air broadcast journalist in local news and ultimately, worked as a Washington correspondent covering Capitol Hill and the White House.

Becker also directed an award-winning short documentary film. “A Journey with Purpose” follows her nine-year old son’s trip to Auschwitz with his grandfather, who was a prisoner there for four years. Today, the film is in the Facing History library, a non-profit nurturing democracy through education.
