President, Commercial Operations

Ruth Fornell

As president of commercial operations, Ruth is a member of the Sovos execution leadership team.  She is responsible for protecting and growing Sovos’ $500M revenue.  Ruth leads our international businesses and global customer facing teams managing customer relationships and service delivery including our recently acquired provider of turn-key services for global beverage alcohol companies. Her philosophy when it comes to the job is to work hard, drive results and have fun doing it.

A hands-on leader, Ruth sees her primary function as creating alignment in the organization around three critical areas: best practices, talent, and customer-centric execution. This strategy has served her well in her professional life and was a guiding principle in helping to build a $600 million global professional services group during her more than 20 years at NCR Corporation.

Ruth’s career has led to her working across six continents and living outside the U.S. on three occasions. She credits these experiences with preparing her to lead global organizations through a greater understanding of local cultures and business practices. When not at work, she is often pursuing her passions for baking and running, which she notes are probably connected.
