People have the power to make or break a company. At Deli Market News, we’ve seen firsthand how powerful people can single handedly change the game in this industry. Across both the buy- and supply-sides, companies support their people by dedicating an entire department to them, known as Human Resources. C&S Wholesale Grocers recently made a move to strengthen its Human Resources team, appointing Miriam Ort as the next Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO), effective December 2, 2019.
“Miriam is a highly experienced Human Resources leader that has driven transformational programs and initiatives that support long-term business growth for a variety of companies in complex industries,” said Mike Duffy, Chief Executive Officer. “She brings the right approach, skills, and focus to continue evolving our culture and talent priorities, as we evolve on our journey to become an employer of choice. We look forward to Miriam joining the C&S Family.”
According to a press release, Ort has been Senior Vice President, Human Resources of the Americas at Avis Budget Group since 2017. Prior to this, she held positions of increasing responsibility at PepsiCo and Avon Products. Ort earned a master’s degree in Human Resource Management from Rutgers University and a bachelor’s degree from Thomas Edison State College. She is an accomplished author that has written many thought-leadership publications, and is a frequent contributor to HR publications and forums, including Harvard Business Review online and The Conference Board. She is the co-author of the bestselling book One Page Talent Management: Eliminating Complexity, Adding Value by Harvard Business Press.
Ort succeeds CHRO, Asad Husain, who is retiring as of December 31, 2019. In her new role, she will report to Mike Duffy.
Congratulations to Miriam Ort on this exciting new role!
