Dollar General Corp. has promoted retail industry veteran Sanja Krajnovic to the position of SVP of store operations. Having joined the company in 2020 as divisional VP, leading store operations for about 2,400 stores in the Midwest, Krajnovic will now head operations for around half of the retailer’s stores.
The executive “has made an immediate impact by building cross-functional partnerships throughout the business, including store operations, supply chain, merchandising and others,” noted Steve Sunderland, Dollar General’s EVP of store operations. “In addition to Sanja’s ability to think strategically while staying focused on execution, her commitment to and passion for team development will further the company’s employee engagement efforts, support our track record of internal promotions and facilitate an environment for employee career growth. We look forward to seeing Sanja’s contributions to our store teams and congratulate her on the promotion.”
Before coming to Dollar General, Krajnovic held positions of increasing responsibility at Target Corp. for 24 years, most recently as group VP, global supply chain and logistics, in which capacity, she delivered operational excellence across multi-site functions in retail operations, food, global supply chain and logistics.
