Kroger has elected Ashok Vemuri to the company’s board of directors.
Vemuri is chief executive officer of Conduent, a global digital interactions company. He joined the company as CEO in 2016 as it was preparing for its separation from Xerox in 2017. Prior to Conduent, he served as president, CEO and a member of the board of directors of IGate Corporation (now Capgemini), a global technology and services company. Before IGate, Vemuri spent 14 years in a variety of leadership and business development roles at Infosys, a multinational consulting and IT services company.
Vemuri is elected to serve until Kroger’s annual meeting of shareholders in June 2019. At that time, he will stand for election by the shareholders.
“We are delighted to welcome Ashok to Kroger,” said Rodney McMullen, Kroger’s chairman and CEO. “As we enter our second year of implementing Restock Kroger, Ashok’s deep experience leading several digital and technology services companies will be a tremendous asset to Kroger’s board of directors.”
