Get to know our new and recently promoted leaders at Levi Strauss & Co. through these Quick Qs. Meet Jessica Cossalter, our new director of Global Ethics & Compliance.

1. What did you do before joining LS&Co.?
I spent the last several years in the agricultural industry with CHS and Cargill, building out and implementing their ethics and compliance program. Before that, I spent time in the financial services industry, focused on anti-money laundering and other securities regulations. I’m excited for the industry change to retail and apparel and am looking forward to continuing to mature the ethics and compliance programs at LS&Co.

2. What is your go-to LS&Co. product?

Skinny jeans all the way, but I am really loving my Trucker jacket right now.

3. What advice would you give to your younger self?

Focus on one thing at a time. Live in the moment and soak it all up. Yesterday is over, let it go. Tomorrow’s issues will be waiting for you then, live for today!

4. How do you unwind?

I love pilates, yoga or reading if I feel like doing something solo — but nothing beats family game night with my husband and kids.

5. What’s the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?

A trip around the world with my family and a few close friends.
