Carly is a true leader and a seasoned problem-solver. She is a passionate, articulate advocate for entrepreneurship, innovation, and effective leadership. Carly started out as a secretary for a small real-estate business and eventually became the first woman ever to lead a Fortune 50 company. Carly was recruited to lead HP in 1999, during the worst technology  recession in 25 years. While there, she re-focused the company on innovation and market leadership again. Under Carly's leadership, revenues grew, innovation tripled, growth quadrupled, and HP grew to become the 11th largest company in the U.S.

After leaving HP, Carly focused her efforts on giving back. Prior to announcing her candidacy for the Republican nomination for President in 2015, she served as the Chairman of Good360, the world's largest product philanthropy organization, and as Chairman of Opportunity International, a Christian-based organization that lifts millions out of poverty  around the globe through micro-finance.
