Vice Chairman, Roll Global

Lynda Resnick is Vice Chairman of Roll Global. Dubbed the "POM Queen," she is behind the marketing success of POM Wonderful 100% pomegranate juice. Resnick and her husband, Stewart, also own Paramount Farms and Paramount Citrus Companies – making them the nation's largest farmers of tree crops – as well as the floral service Teleflora and FIJI Water, the nation's No. 1 imported bottled water. Resnick continues to create and build successful brands for all their crops and companies, including the groundbreaking “Get Crackin” campaign for Wonderful Pistachios and Cuties brand clementine oranges.

Resnick is vice chairman of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Board of Trustees. She serves on the executive boards of The Aspen Institute, UCLA Medical Sciences, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Milken Family Foundation, and is a trustee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Resnick revealed her marketing secrets in her best-selling book, "Rubies in the Orchard: How to Uncover the Hidden Gems in Your Business."

In late 2010, Lynda turned her philanthropic attention to California’s Central Valley, where a large portion of her company’s employees live and work. Her efforts resulted in the recent launch of the Central Valley Leadership Project, a multi-pronged, hands-on program to expand opportunities and transform low-income and underserved towns throughout this economically significant agricultural region into hopeful and vibrant communities.

In 2012, Resnick was awarded a Doctorate of Humane Letters by Bard College.

The Resnicks are proud parents and grandparents and maintain homes in Beverly Hills, California and Aspen, Colorado.
