Hershey’s Women Leaders Awarded Progressive Grocer’s Top Women in Grocery Award

Hershey’s Senior Director of Sales Planning Lisa Meyer and Director of Category Management Denise Edwards have been recognized with Progressive Grocer’s Top Women in Grocery award for rising stars.

The lists of honorees, which have been released annually since 2007, came out in June. The gala honoring these women took place Nov. 6–7 in Orlando, Fla.

Among Meyer’s accomplishments, in 2018, she organized the sales-planning team made up of all new team members. They met their 75-day goal to deliver the entire U.S. sales plan by retailer, month and more.

Edwards, who is responsible for growing Hershey’s seasonal and digital commerce business units at Kroger, has been recognized as a best-in-class partner by both organizations.
