United Natural Foods has named Faten Freiha as director of investor relations and corporate strategy.
Freiha will be responsible for all aspects of investor relations and corporate strategy for the Providence, R.I.-based wholesaler and will work closely with the executive management team, the company said.
Freiha has more than 10 years of investor relations and finance experience. She spent the past four years with Iron Mountain, a Boston-based storage and information management services company.
Freiha will report directly to CFO Mike Zechmeister. She succeeds Halie O’Shea, who departed the company in November.
“We are pleased to welcome Faten to the UNFI team and look forward to leveraging her extensive investor relations background to continue to improve UNFI’s investor communications and engagement,” Zechmeister said in a statement. “In addition, we look forward to her further building upon our corporate strategy efforts as we execute on our growth opportunities.”
Freiha holds a B.A. in international relations from Boston University and a master's in finance from Brandeis University.
