Stacey Kravitz has been named president of UNFI Canada.
Kravitz currently serves as the company’s senior vice-president of sales. She will step into the role Aug. 2, as outgoing president Peter Brennan prepares to retire at the end of UNFI Canada’s fiscal year.
In her new role, Kravitz will oversee “broadline natural, organic and specialty distribution in Canada, and lead a sales, merchandising and supply chain organization of more than 450 associates,” according to a press release. Kravitz will report to UNFI president and CMO Chris Testa.
“Stacey creates highly collaborative stakeholder relationships and has a proven track record of building sales, developing business relationships, managing operations, and leading strategic planning,” said Testa. “Her UNFI experience and accomplishments–from structuring national sales and customer business teams to negotiating high-profile preferred distribution agreements–are among her many career achievements that led to today’s announcement.”
Kravitz has more than 25 years industry experience, having held senior sales positions at Kraft Foods, Kraft Heinz Canada and UNFI Canada. In 2012, Kravitz was named one of Canadian Grocer‘s Star Women in Grocery award winners.
