"The Network's ambitious plans to rapidly grow membership, invest in transformative technologies and add value for new and long-time members and partners requires a Board of strong, visionary leaders," said NEW President and CEO Joan Toth. "We're fortunate to benefit from leaders like Carmen and Nicola, who are passionate about advancing women in the industry and leveraging the business benefits of gender equity. NEW officers and Board members know that as women succeed, their organizations flourish and the industry prospers."

At the Annual Members Meeting, NEW Vice Chair Karen Stuckey, senior vice president, softlines and general merchandise sourcing at Wal-Mart Stores Inc., was elected Board chair. NEW Board Chair Betsy Hosick, general manager, procurement, downstream, midstream and services for Chevron Corporation, was elected immediate past chair.

Marla Thompson, senior vice president, U.S. strategy for Catalina, was reelected to the position of regional advisory chair.

Toth thanked outgoing NEW Education and Research Chair Maria Edelson of Sales & Capability Development and directors at-large Sarah Chartrand of Ahold USA, Dian Emerson of Safeway, Tonie Leatherberry of Deloitte, Marnette Perry of Kroger and Greg Warren of Walmart.

"The Network, our members and partner companies, and the industry's diversity and inclusion efforts have benefited from the generous and valuable service of Maria, Sarah, Dian, Tonie, Marnette and Greg," Toth said. "We thank them for their efforts to close the gender gap. They've made a difference and helped propel women's leadership throughout the industry."
