The Network of Executive Women receives vital support from the industry's boldest leaders. This year the Network is recognizing one of those leaders - Delhaize America - for its support of our mission of attracting, retaining and advancing women in the consumer products and retail industry. Please join us and many of the industry's top leaders as we honor our 2010 Outstanding Champion at our special reception during the FMI show.
A special company
Delhaize America is a member of the Brussels-based Delhaize Group and one of the largest supermarket chains in the United States. The company operates under the names of Food Lion, Bloom, Bottom Dollar, Hannaford Brothers, Harvey's Reid's and Sweetbay, and maintains a special connection to its associates. Like the Network, Delhaize America makes training and advancement a core value, focusing on "integrity, diversity, embracing differences, learning and development and a strong work ethic." These traits were exemplified during the past year by the company's exceptional executive team. Delhaize America has five women as part of its Executive Committee, three of which serve as banner presidents. One particular female president is Cathy Green, a member of NEW's board of directors. Ms. Green was instrumental in the creation of the Carolinas regional committee, has spoken at numerous NEW events and has worked with the Network to enroll new members and sponsors. Hannaford Brothers was an early supporter of the Network's first regional committee in New England, while Mike Vail and the Sweetbay team took the lead in initiating the Florida regional committee. Mr. Vail was a keynote speaker at the Network's 2009 Executive Leaders Forum. The Network's 2010 Outstanding Champion award honors these executives and the entire Delhaize America team. This is the first time the Network has recognized an entire company with its Outstanding Champion award.
