Sean Leighton is Global Vice President of Food Safety, Quality & Regulatory at Cargill, one of the world’s largest food
companies with 155,000 employees in more than 70 countries. After years of trying to figure out if he was a
business mind trapped in a scientist’s body or vice-versa, Leighton is tapping into both in his Cargill role,
responsible for advancing Cargill’s food safety, quality and regulatory strategy, and contributing to public policy
that protects consumers around the world.
