Executive Chair at GOJO Industries, Makers of PURELL

Marcella Kanfer Rolnick is Executive Chair of GOJO. As the third generation of family leadership, Marcella creates meaning and value every day through her diverse family enterprise – which includes GOJO and an array of early-stage ventures and philanthropic foundations. As Executive Chair, she focuses on vision-setting, long-term strategy, sound governance, and stewardship of the family values and culture that have propelled GOJO to success. Keys to that success: always seeking possibilities for making the world better; working on the forefront of new thinking and innovation; being adaptable in a fast-changing world; team-based co-creation; and non-stop learning.

Marcella was Vice Chair of GOJO from 2007 to May 2018, when she became Executive Chair. Previously, Marcella worked in several areas of GOJO, including production, R&D, market research, and market development. Marcella helped lead the launch of PURELL® Hand Sanitizer in the consumer market and then established the company’s initial e-business capability and digital strategy in the late 1990s. Outside of GOJO, she had early- and mid-career roles within a consulting firm, a multi-media publisher, and a boutique investment company.

She also co-leads Walnut Ridge, a family office that supports the business, investment, non-profit philanthropic and family goals, and activities of the Kanfer family.

Marcella serves on a wide variety of nonprofit and for-profit boards, including the Advisory Board of the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit at Case Western Reserve University, Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation, and Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah, which she chairs. She earned her MBA from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business and her BA from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs.
