retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Network of Executive Women (NEW) announced that Jeff Noddle, executive chairman of Supervalu, has been named as the organization’s “Outstanding Champion for 2009,” an award that will be given to Noddle in late August at the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) Executive Conference in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The award is presented each year to a senior-level consumer products industry leader "who has consistently championed the mission of NEW, created diverse, high-performance work teams, demonstrated the business imperative of diversity and inclusion, and challenged the industry to remain an employer of choice."
