A new leader is making her way through SpartanNash’s executive ring. Nicole Zube is joining the retail distributor’s team as the new Senior Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer.
Previously from Kellogg Company, where she most recently served as Head of HR – U.S. Commercial, Zube joins SpartanNash’s C-suite effective immediately. At Kellogg, she served in a variety of human resources roles for the past 10 years, including a three-year stint in the United Kingdom, where she was Senior HR Director, European Supply Chain and Senior HR Director, European Talent and Diversity.
Prior to Kellogg, Zube worked in various HR positions during her eight-year career at Procter & Gamble, according to a press release, rounding out a nearly two-decade career in the industry before joining SpartanNash.
The new executive earned her bachelor’s degree from Northern Kentucky University and her master’s degree from Xavier University. In 2020 and 2021, she was recognized as a Top 10 Global Diversity HR Champion by the Global Diversity List, and as the 2021 LEAD Ambassador of the Year by LEAD Network Europe.
The press release noted that the addition of Zube demonstrates the remarkable transformation of SpartanNash’s executive leadership team during the past two years, since the appointment of Chief Executive Officer Tony Sarsam.
“Nicole is an accomplished people leader with invaluable experience managing a large-scale, global workforce within the food industry,” said Sarsam. “Throughout her career, Nicole has demonstrated passion and commitment to creating an outstanding associate experience, and we are thrilled to have her join SpartanNash as we continue our work to put People First.”
Congratulations to Nicole Zube as she starts her new chapter!
