This is the 17
th year Progressive Grocer has hosted this program that celebrates the accomplishments and contributions of thousands of women at all levels of the industry. Nominees include female employees in all sectors of the grocery industry, including retailers, wholesalers, suppliers and solution-providers in the community. 

This is what Progressive Grocer had to say about why each recipient from our team was selected:

  • Rachael Peot’s category strategies and plans played an integral part in helping to drive the total business up by double digits versus the prior year across the portfolio.

    • She led a strategic project outside of her normal responsibility set to create an internal platform to share relevant need-to-know information regarding the consumer brands business; the platform now serves as the single source of truth for the consumer brands organization.
    • Peot helped organize the annual national sales meeting and had ownership over building category narratives, which were used to align category opportunities with internal strategies.
  • Diane D’Angelo delivered significant sales growth in 2022 for the third consecutive year with her two club store accounts: One account saw total sales growth of 29.5 percent, while the other saw growth of 19.5 percent.

    • She played a critical role in the integration of the new CJ Foods sales team, training them on Schwan’s internal forecasting tools and sharing the company’s strategic approach to trade management and investment.
    • D’Angelo has provided retail insights on the club channel to Cleveland Research for the past several years; this has enabled the firm to issue publications on shopper dynamics and trends. 

Other categories in the award program include senior-level executives, store managers and trailblazers. To celebrate all recipients, a “Top Women in Grocery Awards Gala” is scheduled for November.
