6:00 pm — 8:30 pm

She has transformed tacos into emojis, Snapchat lenses and art, made Taco Bell a destination experience (and wedding venue) in Vegas, showed the world they could feast for $1 at Taco Bell through advertising it as a modern Renaissance dinner party, and most recently introduced the Naked Chicken Chalupa, breaking open a new category for the brand in a uniquely Taco Bell way. Marisa Thalberg is as out-of-the-box as the brand she represents, which is just one reason she has been named 2017 She Runs It Woman of the Year.
