The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company
Senior Vice President, Merchandising and Supply & Logistics

I am responsible for $9.7 billion in sales and I lead approximately 470 employees. I have more than 27 years of experience in the food industry, holding positions of increasing responsibility within operations, marketing and merchandising. Most recently before A&P, I served as the corporate vice president and senior lead of Safeway’s innovative and fresh format “Lifestyle Store” development project. My varied background provides me with a unique understanding of our customers’ needs and allows me to bring this perspective to my merchandising decisions.
