The Kroger Co. has promoted Kate Ward to be the Cincinnati-based grocer’s director of investor relations.
Ward joined Kroger in 2001 as an auditor. In 2005, she moved to capital management, where she has served in several leadership roles, including her current role as manager of finance.
“Kate has been a valuable member of our capital management team for the last 10 years,” said Mike Schlotman, Kroger's EVP and CFO. “We are very pleased she will bring her experience to working with our investors and analysts.”
Ward succeeds Cindy Holmes, who was promoted to senior director of pension investments. Holmes began her Kroger career in 1990 as a systems analyst in Kroger Technology.
“We thank Cindy for her accomplished service in investor relations, and look forward to her contributions on our pension investments team,” Schlotman said.
Kroger operates 2,623 supermarkets and multidepartment stores in 34 states and the District of Columbia under two dozen local banner names including Kroger, City Market, Dillons, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry's, Harris Teeter, Jay C, King Soopers, QFC, Ralphs and Smith's.
