EVP & COO, Albertsons Companies
Susan Morris began her career in Albertsons Denver Division while still in high school and worked her way up in the ranks proving her ability to lead, to execute and to bring teams together in one assignment after another in her 30+ years in the retail grocery business. Since March of 2015, Susan has led the Denver Division team after having successfully led our Boise-based Intermountain Division for the two prior years. Her career has spanned roles from Store Director to Corporate Grocery Sales Director, Vice President of Bakery and Operations and, upon the sale of Albertson’s Inc.’s assets to SUPERVALU, Vice President of Customer Satisfaction. In 2010, she was Senior Vice President of Sales and Merchandising when she left SUPERVALU to join Albertsons LLC’s Southwest Division as Grocery Sales Manager, and was appointed Vice President of Marketing & Merchandising in 2012.
Morris was named EVP, East Operations in April 2016, and after a year leading those divisions was appointed EVP, West Operations in April 2017. In January 2018, Susan was appointed EVP & Chief Operations Officer.
A talented leader with profound commitment, Morris is widely admired within the company for readily accepting new challenges, developing others and bringing teams together. She personifies Albertsons' entrepreneurial spirit.
Morris says, "One of the key lessons I have learnt overtime is never hesitate to ask for what you want because you often get it. Push yourself to do things that makes you uncomfortable. Take up a new challenge. It's amazing what will happen when you do that. You learn so much when you push yourself to do different things. Surround yourself with people that have passion, energy and drive and excitement. Also make sure you cultivate that."
