With grocery and snacks maintaining a place in shoppers’ carts, it helps to have an industry expert at the helm to drive further awareness. Conagra Brands is following this mindset it seems, as it recently announced the appointment of Lucy Brady as its latest President of Grocery and Snacks.
Brady brings extensive experience in marketing, corporate strategy, innovation, business development, and value creation, noted the release. Prior to joining the Conagra team, Brady spent the last six years with McDonald’s Corporation as Chief Digital Customer Engagement Officer and Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy, Business Development, and Innovation. In these roles, Brady and her team were responsible for some of McDonald’s most significant growth drivers that helped elevate and modernize the McDonald's customer experience, including delivery, loyalty, digital ordering, and pickup and personalized communications.
Before her time at McDonald’s Corporation, she spent 19 years at Boston Consulting Group, including nine years as a Senior Partner and Managing Director, where she advised some of the world's largest consumer companies on growth, innovation, and transformation.
In this new role, Brady will lead the ongoing modernization and growth of Conagra’s grocery and snack portfolio, which includes brands such as Slim Jim®, Duncan Hines®, and Angie’s® BOOMCHICKAPOP®, with a focus on delivering products that reflect evolving consumer demand and trends. She will officially step on June 15, 2022.
“Lucy has a tremendous background and proven leadership skills that will be critical as we continue to grow our successful Grocery and Snacks business,” said Tom McGough, Executive Vice President and Co-Chief Operating Officer. “We’re excited to have Lucy join Conagra and build on the momentum we have created for our iconic and emerging brands.”
Adding to her credibility, Brady earned a bachelor’s degree from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and an MBA with highest honors from Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Congratulations to Lucy Brady as she prepares for her next chapter.
