What’s the best part of your job?

The team with whom I work. They inspire me with their dedication, enthusiasm and talent. 

What inspires your leadership approach?

I’m here to provide guidance and resources to my team that allows them to do their jobs. I strive to be directional rather than instructional when giving advice on any project. And I like that I get to share my long history with Wakefern and our brands that helps to inform all of our work going forward.

What do you cherish most about being a part of the industry?

The changes that are occurring in retail make for a very exciting time. I’ve had the privilege of working with so many individuals and business partners that are leading this change, whether through GMDC and Retail Tomorrow or other industry resources. I particularly love connecting people and opportunity. I have met entrepreneurs and liked their concepts and then connected them with others in the industry who might benefit from their product or service. Having a large network of partners and friends is very rewarding.
