CINCINNATI — Kroger on Monday named Reuben Shaffer the grocer’s new chief diversity officer, effective immediately.
“Diversity is a core value at Kroger,” stated David Dillon, Kroger chairman and CEO. “We take our commitment to diversity seriously, both because it is right and because it makes us better at our business. When our decision-making is inclusive and reflects the diversity of our customers, we make better decisions.”
Shaffer will oversee Kroger’s comprehensive diversity initiatives, including supplier diversity and integrating the company’s ongoing commitment to create an inclusive culture into key business and organization initiatives.
Shaffer, 60, has been serving as VP retail operations for the Cincinnati/Dayton division and began his career with Kroger in 1988.
Shaffer will report directly to Dillon.
