Kroger Sets New Leadership For Central, QFC Divisions

The Kroger Co.’s central division president Katie Wolfram has retired. The company has promoted Pam Matthews, currently the company’s QFC division president, to succeed her.

Suzy Monford will join the company to become president of the QFC division.

Matthews was named president of the QFC division in 2016. Previously, she was vp/operations at Kroger’s Delta division. Monford was CEO of Andronico’s Community Markets prior to her QFC appointment, a San Francisco Bay Area chain acquired by Albertsons in 2017.

“We are grateful for Katie’s nearly 40 years of dedicated service to our associates and customers, and we are excited to have Pam and Suzy take on these indispensable leadership roles in our company,” said Rodney McMullen, Kroger’s chairman and CEO. “Both leaders bring successful and distinguished retail experience to the roles and will help with the execution of the Restock Kroger Plan that will bring valuable changes to our customers, associates, communities and shareholders.”
