Albertsons Cos. has promoted Denver Division President Susan Morris to the position of EVP of retail operations over its East Region. She succeeds Kelly Griffith who left the company earlier this month.
During her tenure with Albertsons, Morris has held a variety of roles, including store director, corporate grocery sales director, and VP of bakery and operations. She was named VP of customer satisfaction following the sale of Albertson's Inc.'s assets to Supervalu, and later senior VP of sales and merchandising before joining Albertsons LLC.
In March 2013, Morris moved from her role as VP of marketing & merchandising for the Southwest Division to Intermountain Division President, and since March 2015 has led the company's 130-store Denver Division.
"In the span of our company’s history, we have helped to develop some of the greatest retail leaders in the industry today, and Susan is certainly an excellent addition to that list," said COO Wayne Denningham.
"Her experience in grocery is invaluable both as an operator and a merchant. We look forward to her taking on this key role as we look to continue to grow and strengthen our operation while furthering our goal of becoming the Favorite Local Supermarket across the nearly 2,300 neighborhoods we serve," he said.
Albertsons Cos. operates stores across 35 states and the District of Columbia under 18 banners including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, ACME, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets, Pavilions, Star Market and Carrs.
