COVER FEATURE

2018 Top Women in Grocery
Cynthia Logan

Rene Kendrick
District
Merchandising
Manager, The
Kroger Co./
Louisville

Kendrick began
2017 as a pharmacy merchandiser for 95 pharmacies; later,
she assumed a special role as
district merchandising manager.
As a pharmacy merchandiser,
she headed the second-busiest
division at Kroger; she also led
the Louisville division to be the
first chain in Kentucky to give
Naloxone training to pharmacists and provide the drug
via protocol to those who've
overdosed on opioids.
Kendrick is co-chair of the
Louisville division chapter of
Kroger's associate resource
group for women and an active
volunteer in her church and
community, as well as in professional organizations.

District Manager,
The Kroger Co./
Louisville

Going into her
25th year at Kroger,
Logan leads store teams in
planning, implementing and executing merchandising and operations initiatives to help build
store sales and gross profits.
Her district netted the highest sales volume for the Louisville division and experienced
a 54 percent increase in the
retention rate.
In the spirit of Kroger's Zero
Hunger Zero Waste initiative,
Logan is a strong community
supporter: Her district donated
more than a half-million pounds
of food last year - a 20 percent
increase - to God's Pantry
Food Bank, which she additionally serves as a volunteer and a
member of its board of directors.

Tracy Mobley

Plant Manager,
Cheese Center of
Excellence Leader,
The Kroger Co./
Manufacturing

Under Mobley's
leadership, year-end 2017
total plant efficiency was the
highest since 2011, having
seen a dramatic 14 percentage-point improvement in
2016 and another five percentage-point rise in 2017.
Other milestone metrics that
she achieved throughout the
year included improvements in
cost per unit and material loss for
two consecutive years, as well
as managing a record EBITDA
in 2017. 
Mobley received a Kroger
Manufacturing Excellence
Award, along with the Kroger
Iceberg Award, given to a plant
for 365 days without an OSHA
recordable, and the Kroger Eagle
Award for Quality Excellence.

RISING STARS

Amanda Puck
Director of
Strategic Brand
Development,
The Kroger Co./
Mariano's

Puck has been
described as one of Mariano's
biggest cheerleaders, heading
brand development for that
banner through social media,
public relations and special
events; she's also involved in
culinary and marketing initiatives
and guides relationships with
Mariano's "Tastemakers."
She positively affected the
community with Stuff the
Squad store events for local
food pantries, and a Girls
on the Run partnership to
support Mariano's initiative to
raise 1 million pounds of food
for two Chicago food banks.
In her personal time, Puck volunteers with the Greater Chicago
Food Depository.
