2018 Top Women in Grocery
Kim Riedell

SVP, Advantage
Solutions/Advantage
Media Solutions

Under Riedell's
guidance, Advantage Media is the industry-leading digital media and
programmatic media company
for CPG and retail brands,
experiencing a 50 percent revenue increase year over year.
Advantage's flagship proprietary
data product, MomentAware,
delivering real-time shopping data
to retailers and brands to find
consumers at the right time and
place, was expanded last year
under her strategic direction.

created a video demo product
that could be delivered programmatically, enhancing the
partnership's digital demonstration capabilities.

Valerie D. Lewis

Kim Hsieh

VP, Strategy
and Integration,
Advantage
Solutions/Advantage
Retail Experiential

Hsieh developed four best-in-class
programs that have become
foundational pillars for 2018.
With a strong focus on innovation, she created two advisor
programs unique to the grocery
channel, one involving beauty
and the other involving specialty
cheese. Both proved highly successful both for the retailers and
CPG brands that participated.
In partnership with the adult
beverage team, Hsieh worked on
three new Napa experience programs, including the sold-out Sip
& Savor initiative, which features
a premium branded cart next to
a relevant food-pairing branded cart to create an elevated
experience.

regular work, Lord worked with
and helped champion a small

meet the requirements of the
Food Safety Modernization Act,
oversaw the implementation of
compliance with the California

injunction program, and helped
write and institute Albertsons'
chemicals policy. 
A member of the board of
directors of the Oakland African

the chamber and the community.

Despite managing multiple
departments, she took on the
responsibilities of managing both
the entire benefits function and
the compensation committee of
the board of directors.
During the Southern California

and contacted employees who
might've been affected by the disasters to see what they needed
help with; she also assists with
community outreach efforts such
as painting houses for the needy.

Ellie Taylor

President,
Alabama Grocers
Association

Taylor was
instrumental in
creating Eat at Home Alabama, which offers customers
information on saving money
at grocery stores and using
coupons effectively, along with
recipes and food safety tips.
She worked with her state to
expand the number of days per
month that Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
recipients could purchase groceries, creating a better shopping
experience for SNAP clients.
Taylor implemented the
year-round Buy Alabama Best
program, which educates
consumers on products made,
produced, manufactured and/
or based in the state, with sales
proceeds benefiting Children's
Hospital of Alabama.

Susan Morris

EVP/COO,
Albertsons Cos./
Corporate

Morris created
the role of VP,
retail operations support to act
as a liaison between Albertsons'
decentralized divisions and
corporate functional groups;
through this, she created a platform for cross-company collaboration on front end operations,
retail integrity, labor management and customer satisfaction,
improving communication and
results in these areas. 
She instituted a company-wide, cross-functional
Service Council to enhance
both customer and employee
engagement; the results of
the council's work are being
launched across the company.

minority-owned companies, in
