What’s the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Working with our customers to solve problems to grow our mutual sales. 

What inspires your leadership approach?

I am inspired everyday by our customers, which allows me to have a “hands-on approach” so I can lead by example. It’s my anti-ivory tower approach.

What do you value most about being a part of the grocery business?

What I value most is my relationships—both professional and personal—with our customers. It has been a blessing to work with many of our customers for over a quarter of a century. 

Favorite food: Soup.
