Following the retirement of Jerry Clontz, president of Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic division, the company has appointed Paula Ginnett to the role, effective November 1. She has previously been serving as a vice president at the company.
Ginnett joined Kroger after more than 25 years with Walmart. For the five years prior to her recent move to Kroger, she served as vp/regional general manager for Walmart U.S., based in Phoenix.
“Paula is well-respected in the industry for being both a dynamic leader and a top retail strategist,” said Mike Donnelly, Kroger’s executive vice president and COO. “She brings more than 25 years of retail experience to her new role as president of our Mid-Atlantic division. We look forward to her leadership in redefining the grocery customer experience, developing talent and living our purpose.”
