Last week, The Fresh Market appointed Chris Himebauch to its SVP and Chief Human Resources Officer position, effective immediately. As SVP and Chief Human Resources Officer, Himebauch will pull from his past HR experience and will oversee corporate HR, field HR, talent acquisition, as well as train teams.
“I love working in the retail industry and am especially excited about joining The Fresh Market,” Himebauch said in a press release. “I am very optimistic about the company, our team members, and making The Fresh Market not only a great place to shop, but also a great place to work.”
Prior to joining The Fresh Market’s team, Himebauch served as Stein Mart’s Chief Human Resources Officer (2016-2018), APR Energy’s Human Resources Officer (2011-2016), and Winn-Dixie’s Senior Director of Field Human Resources (2007-2011).
“The Fresh Market is known for having best-in-class specialty food, sold in a friendly, engaging shopping environment,” said CEO Larry Appel. “Bringing Chris on board ensures that we’ll continue to offer unparalleled guest services in our stores by continuing to grow our extraordinary team members.”
