Tracy Hitchcock, Chief Operations Officer
Tracy comes to Stoltz with over 23 years of experience in marketing, business strategy, management consulting, and multiple aspects of the foodservice industry. During her 17-year tenure with J.R. Simplot Company, she worked her way up the ranks in product innovation, global operations and marketing. Taking a break from corporate life, Tracy found herself drawn to the nonprofit social enterprise, Create Common Good, where she was appointed CEO in 2015.
Being the CEO of a non-profit isn’t like running a company that makes widgets. It takes the perfect blend of creativity, strategy as well as hearty helpings of versatility, compassion, hustle and inspiration. More than a global executive, Tracy is a business and people leader, a mentor, and a community do-gooder committed to living and working with purpose. When she decided to join our team, we were sincerely humbled…and equally fist-pumping something like this and this.
Aside from emanating a perpetual glow of positive leadership mojo, Tracy generously serves as a member of the Boise Police Department Chief’s Community Advisory Panel. She also mentors a sixth-grade student at Jefferson Elementary, is a mentor of girls via envisionleadgrow.org, and volunteers with more organizations than we can count. A self-proclaimed recovering diva—we beg to differ—she loves to travel, enjoy music in the great outdoors, and keep our office foodies in the know on Idaho’s wine, craft beer and culinary scene. Though we have no concrete evidence (yet), we have reason to believe that Tracy has developed the technology to squeeze a 30-hour day into 24 hours, as this is the only “logical” explanation for her ability to juggle so many things at once.
