Supervalu announced this week changes to its executive leadership team. Anne Dament has been promoted to Executive Vice President, Retail, Marketing and Private Brands effective immediately.
Dament joined Supervalu in January 2017 and has made significant contributions to Supervalu, including developing a strong plan and implementation strategy to improve the company’s retail division, reorganizing multiple retail merchandise groups, consolidating wholesale and retail marketing efforts and driving new product introductions. With respect to new products, she has brought new ideas and direction to Supervalu’s portfolio, including launching over 350 new private label items this year, and developed other innovative solutions, such as Supervalu’s recent launch of its national Quick & Easy meal solution program.
“Anne is a smart, creative, and dynamic leader and has made a significant impact on our team in a short time frame,” said Mark Gross, Supervalu’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Over the last year, she’s set a positive vision for our retail initiatives, particularly here in Minnesota, introduced exciting new product innovation to wholesale and retail, and brought greater collaboration between our retail and wholesale teams.”
