Chief Compliance Officer

General counsel, compliance officer and business leader in the food and beverage industry. I have a proven track record of success defining legal and business strategies and leading a broad range of complex business transactions in the US, Europe and Asia. My focus has been on setting the strategic vision and priorities for the legal, compliance and franchising functions to support U.S. and international business plans aligned with Global corporate goals and values. I find it extremely empowering and rewarding to be part of a values-led organization that is focused on meeting the expectations of today’s and tomorrow’s consumer, supporting small business owners (franchisees), working closely with supply chain and delivery partners and putting people first. Equally rewarding is developing and leading high performing talented teams empowered to be creative problem solvers, decision makers and innovators for the future — while also having fun and enjoying working together. 

Current Role

  • Company Name: Meijer
  • Job Title: Chief Compliance Officer
  • Start Date: March 2022
  • Company Industry: Retail
  • Location: Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States

It takes guts to start a business during the Great Depression. And it takes vision to keep it going. Our founder, Hendrik Meijer, opened Thrifty Acres in 1934. Almost thirty years later, his son, Fred, pioneered the world’s first ever supercenter – setting the table for who we are today: a multi-billion-dollar household name in retail. Of course, we’re not done. Not by a long shot. We recently launched the nation’s largest grocery home-delivery service – reinventing the business of grocery shopping … again. A lot has changed over the years, except for one thing; we’re still family owned. And that sense of family runs deep in everything we do. It’s the difference between selling a product and serving a community, and it’s the reason we’ve given back over $30 million to local food pantries in the last ten years. So, if you appreciate the pioneering spirit of Meijer, we’d like to connect with you. Because the bigger our family, the better.
