7501 W. 69th St., Overland Park, Kansas 66204


The ITC is pleased to host Kristi Gribble, Global Supply Chain Operations Director at Hallmark Cards for the February Fourth Friday Breakfast.

Biography: Knowing what you want your future to look like helps you chart a path to get there. I started with a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Missouri and have more than 25 years supply chain experience at Hallmark. My passion for continuous improvement and mentoring others has opened the door for me to lead in many different organizations within Hallmark including engineering, manufacturing, LEAN, supply chain strategy and corporate strategy. Most recently I have been working through the supply chain challenges brought on by the pandemic and global transportation crisis.

Join the event for a light breakfast and in-person networking.
