In honor of the program’s 11-year anniversary, this year’s Photo Search winner will not only serve as the 2021 Gerber Spokesbaby, but also hold an important and adorable honorary role on Gerber’s Executive Committee. In a world full of CEOs, CMOs, COOs, and CFOs, Gerber’s CGO will get a chance to prove they’re the perfect fit for the role by offering Gerber’s executive team guidance on what little ones everywhere need to grow strong, stay nourished and thrive.
