In his role as Worldwide VP, Global Corporate Affairs & Chief Communication Officer at Johnson & Johnson, Michael Sneed leads the Corporation’s global marketing, community, equity and philanthropy functions.
Truly a jack-of-all-trades, Michael joined The Global Good Fund’s Board of Directors 4 years ago, bringing relevant experience in business with a mission driven organization, rooting for our business model’s success.
Michael’s defining career moment came while residing in Switzerland, when he recognized his ability to build a business from scratch. This provided Michael self-confirmation that he was on the right professional path. This didn’t, however, come without trials and tribulations. The most important piece of advice Michael would offer aspiring young social entrepreneurs is to understand that nothing comes easy; building a business takes hard work and perseverance.
“Take more risks and believe in yourself. Be your biggest cheerleader,” Michael would tell his 25-year-self if given the chance. Although he can’t turn back time, Michael is dedicated to shaping our world for generations to come, one where people understand that the power of diverse experiences and backgrounds leads to great outcomes for the communities in which we live.
