The recognition, which is in the senior-level executive category, honors the critical role women play across all areas of today’s dynamic retail food sector and recognizes the industry’s true executive innovators.
Ali is a third-generation grocer at Rouses, which is a beloved Gulf Coast chain with nearly 6,000 team members. Ali’s 30 team members provide valuable functions across Rouses 45 stores in accounting, finance, IT customer communications, social media and community relations.
