Janice M. Hamilton
President and CEO
CarrotNewYork president and CEO Janice M. Hamilton has had three very diverse paths throughout her career. First, she was a teacher. Then, she traveled to different states, giving educational programs in schools, before joining a Fortune 200 company in a marketing position. All of these experiences taught Hamilton that she wanted to make a difference in the lives of others, and she founded CarrotNewYork.
Fun Fact: In lieu of holiday gifts, CarrotNewYork donates to important causes on behalf of its clients.
Under Hamilton’s leadership, CarrotNewYork creates and delivers programs that “embrace social responsibility and life-long learning,” she says. The company launches its educational programs where, Hamilton says, real impact happens: at schools, in the home, in communities and around the world. Through partnerships with Colgate-Palmolive, the FDA and the Food and Nutrition Service of the USDA, the company has reached more than 1 billion people.
Despite the recent retirement of three long-time members of CarrotNewYork’s management team, Hamilton is excited about her team’s talent. “Fortunately, because our business is built upon doing good, we attract people who really have a passion for what we do and the values we embrace,” she says.
