Hake covered a range of marketing and communication functions, including annual marketing planning, promotional efforts, public relations, web platforms, social media, cause marketing, and customer experience. In a previous role at Best Buy, she led customer insight strategy and execution.

Before Best Buy, Hake held corporate marketing roles for two other household name brands - Pillsbury and 3M. In addition to her experience with Fortune 500 companies, Hake started a retail business that she and her husband eventually franchised. At their peak, they had four of their own locations and 10 franchise locations in seven states.

She has a degree in international business from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln and an MBA in Marketing from University of Minnesota - Carlson School of Management.

For nearly a decade, Lisa has served on the board of The Hellenic American Family Fund (HAFF), a national philanthropic organization committed to assisting families in financial need.
