C&S Wholesale Grocers Names New Chief Human Resources Officer
KEENE, NH - Here at AndNowUKnow, we believe in the power of people. Without the dedicated individuals across the buy- and supply-sides, business as we know it would be a different ballgame. People are so integral to companies that they have an entire department dedicated to supporting 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. She succeeds CHRO, Asad Husain, who is retiring as of December 31, 2019. Miriam will report to Mike Duffy, Chief Executive Officer.
“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 Duffy. “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.
Congratulations to Miriam Ort on this exciting new role!
