Anne Morrone

Manager II
Logistics, Retail
Business Services,
an Ahold Delhaize
USA Company

With financial governance
responsibility for the logistics
department, including budget
development and execution,
Morrone developed the scheduling system known as the
Integrated Management System
(IMS); her work has been critical
to creating the right system for
the company.
Her leadership of the IMS for
inbound logistics has affected all
distribution and transportation;
the initiative will drive efficiency
by removing $10 million from the
supply chain and enable visibility
and execution.
In 2017, Morrone helped drive
department growth and captured
an additional 13.4 percent of
savings from other initiatives.

Megan
Siedlarczyk

District Manager,
Save-A-Lot Food
Stores

Siedlarczyk
began her career as a parttime clerk and rose through the
ranks to assume responsibility
for a district consisting of six
stores; during her tenure, she
has helped improve operational
measures such as sales, profit
and turnover while reducing
expense allocations to increase
net profitability.
Overseeing 100 team members, she also acts as a trainer
for other markets.
Siedlarczyk decreased her
operating expenses by 20
percent, which directly affected
the profitability of her district,
and was influential in developing her team's competencies in
respect to operations.

Christina
Franklin

Director, Space
Management,
Rouses Markets

Overseeing all
planogram updates, center store
fixturing and store resets, Franklin
developed an official reset team
for Rouses in 2017.
A dedicated problem solver,
she coordinated the reset/refresh
of 30-plus stores, helping the
company gross more than $1
billion, and developed a process
and tracking system for all
requested updates via business
unit to space planning.
Franklin is currently working
on a category business plan
process and a timeline for
category managers to ensure
that timelines are followed and
opportunities aren't missed,
and acts as a planogram liaison
between Rouses and manufacturers' representatives.

Jennifer
Holmberg

Senior Manager,
Product
Development,
Schwan's Co.

Holmberg is senior product development/innovation category manager across
Schwan's dessert portfolio.
She led a cross-functional
team pursuing a multimillion-dollar growth opportunity, developing a new product according to
customer specifications; in spite
of a short delay, the product was
delivered and Schwan's won the
business.
As part of Schwan's commitment to eliminate four ingredient
groups in its products for healthand-wellness reasons, Holmberg
led the change in ice cream and
pie formulas; even though the
transition involved a large number
of SKUs, the work was completed at the end of 2017.

RISING STARS

Dianne Graves
Assistant General
Counsel, Save-ALot Food Stores

Under Graves'
leadership, responsibility for managing workers'
compensation, general liability
and other claims transitioned
away from the former parent
company, Supervalu.
Over the past few months, she
has conducted an evaluation
of the claims intake process,
proposing a simplification to senior management and reducing
intake steps from eight to three;
implementation will take place
this summer.
Graves and her team proposed
new litigation counsel across the
country where formerly approved
litigation outside counsel were
underperforming or overwhelmed; under her supervision
a record number of litigation
matters - 49 - was resolved.

Giselle Restrepo
Senior Manager,
Consumer Insights
and Analytics,
Schwan's Consumer
Brands Inc.

Bringing a
one-company view of the
consumer and marketplace to
business unit leaders and other
leadership teams, Restrepo
drives learning to all areas of the
company and interfaces with all
of Schwan's business units.
She leads a team of
cross-functional partners who
each have a stake in monitoring
food trends; the team is currently
designing a trends summit for
corporate employees.
Restrepo played a key role in
providing guidance for Schwan's
ingredient simplicity initiative,
building a Consumer Empathy
platform where teams can learn
to think as target consumers do.
