Paulina Costa Zyskowski is on a mission to help the food and beverage industry bring clean, consumer-friendly products to the world. Based in Chicago, she brings this charge to her role at Kalsec Inc. by facilitating natural ingredient transitions, adding all that nature has to offer back into processed food and drinks.
Zyskowski uses consultative techniques to provide value-added ingredient solutions to food and beverage companies—such as natural colors, spices, antioxidants and herb flavor extracts. As the youngest employee to be hired for Kalsec’s commercial team, she rose from sales associate to senior accountant manager in just five years.
Zyskowski took her sales skills abroad in her former role as global account manager for a major consumer package goods company, where she provided training and support to new business development managers in the United Kingdom. Fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish, she continues to strive for a global executive role and is pursuing an MBA at DePaul University. Additionally, Zyskowski and her husband have successfully built and managed a growing real estate investment business.
