As co-president, Kristi is focused on bringing the unique heritage and vision of the company forward, sharing great food with our customers, and enabling our staff to grow in their careers. She believes all of us bring something extraordinary to the table, and that lays the foundation for strong, vibrant communities and businesses.
Kristi has guided human resources at New Seasons Market as chief people officer since 2014. In addition to leading the people team, Kristi stepped into interim leadership roles supporting new stores. Before New Seasons, Kristi spent 20 years in retail, leading organizational culture and brand strategy at Peet’s Coffee & Tea, and held HR leadership roles at retailers such as the Gap, Williams-Sonoma, and Banana Republic.
Kristi cares deeply about giving everyone access to healthy food; she serves on the board of directors at Zenger Farm, a working urban farm that models, promotes, and educates about sustainable food systems, environmental stewardship, community development, and access to good food for all. When she’s not working you’ll find her out in nature, preferably where there are mountains and snow. She loves to cook for friends and family, and especially loves making delicious kitchen messes with her sisters.
