Albertsons Denver Division President Susan Morris, who oversees 130 stores in five states including Boise, has been appointed executive vice president of retail operations over the company’s east region.
Morris has led the Albertsons Denver division since March 2015. She joined Albertsons when she was 16 as a customer service clerk in Colorado, and worked at store level until she graduated from Colorado State University when she accepted a job at the division office. Her career has spanned roles from store director to corporate grocery sales director, vice president of bakery and operations and, upon the sale of Albertson’s Inc.’s assets to SUPERVALU, vice president of customer satisfaction.
In 2010, Morris was senior vice president of sales and merchandising when she left SUPERVALU to join Albertsons LLC. In March 2013, she moved from her role as vice president of marketing & merchandising for the southwest division to intermountain division president.
Morris is filling the vacancy created when Kelly Griffith announced earlier this month that he would be leaving the company.
Albertsons operates stores in 35 states and the District of Columbia under 18 names including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, ACME, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets, Pavilions, Star Market and Carrs.
