Susan Morris began her career with Albertsons Cos. the way many top executives do: in stores, taking care of customers on the front line. While still in high school, Morris joined Boise, Idaho-based Albertsons more than 30 years ago, and since then, she has held just about every role imaginable in food retailing. She was named VP of marketing and merchandising in 2012, and then became EVP of eastern operations, and later western operations.
