SENIOR-LEVEL
EXECUTIVES

Julie Morales

VP Finance, Giant/
Martin's

as usual during her company's
reorganization to a brand-centric
model; this entailed ensuring that
her team remained focused and
efficient, while preparing for a
future with a new president and a
new structure.
She oversaw the staffing and
selection of the entire Giant/
Martin's finance team, and
worked to develop a culture of
customer service.

19 points above the company
average, and she also drove
the development of ground-up
budgeting processes for sales,
shrink and labor.

Hugo's Family
Marketplace

schedule for the company's
other locations.
She serves on the boards of
her local chamber of commerce, her local Prairie Harvest
Foundation, the Minnesota
Grocers Association, the North
Dakota Grocers Association
and the National Grocers

A great supporter of independently owned grocery stores,

director of the North Dakota Grocers Association to ensure that

all independent grocers.

Danielle Vogel
Founder, Glen's
Garden Market

committed to
growing small

She created AccelerateHERdc,
a business-pitch competition
designed to identify, incubate

Bay Conservancy to quantify
the amount of carbon emissions

nonindigenous produce to her
stores, and to plant trees.

Karen Boriskey
VP, Human
Resources/
Employee
Development,
Hy-Vee Inc.

and implemented a complete
restructure of Hy-Vee's employee-longevity awards program.
She took on a new workforce
management system for the
company, which included rolling
out new hardware and software
to 262 locations, as well as
training employees to use the
software.
Hy-Vee chose to merge its
human resources and training
departments under Boriskey's
leadership, thanks to her vast
knowledge and experience in
these two areas, and she relocated much of the company's
retail functions to a new training
and education center.

Rhonda DeMello
Director
Recruiting/Front
End Operations/
Service Excellence,
Harris Teeter
Supermarkets

Under DeMello's leadership,

and attract potential associates; more than 30,000
applications were submitted

for her volunteer work in raising
more than $36,000 over the past
year by planning and coordinating a weekend music festival to
benefit the organization.

Tina Potthoff

VP, Communications,
Hy-Vee Inc.

Potthoff oversees the communications team
and provides counsel to 245
store directors, plus hundreds of
department heads at both the
corporate and store level.
In December 2017, Hy-Vee
teamed with Hormel and local
first responders to distribute
hams to families in need; with
her team, Potthoff generated 61
media stories - the news equivalency value of almost $700,000,
plus more than 500,000 social
media hits.
Under her direction, Hy-Vee
and the University of Minnesota
Foundation threw a Super Bowl
party and media conference; patients acted as media and asked
questions of several well-known
football players.

Megan Klein

President and
Co-Founder, Here

bringing local
produce to the CPG industry -

team member happiness; she
also serves on the board of Here
Foods PBC, and is a committee

Jessica Ringena
VP, Innovation/

Development,
Hy-Vee Inc.

Ringena was
central to HyVee's Short Cuts commissary
project, centralizing prep and
packaging of grab-and-go
produce for customer convenience; she configured all pricing, from commissary to stores,
and worked with distribution to
decrease time from production
to delivery to stores.
She was part of the development of Market Grille
delivery by working with IT on
the user interface and user
experience for consumers and
other departments.
Ringena used her experience as a CPA to develop new
business plans, partnerships
and research into how the
