Kroger Ups Massa to VP of HR, Labor Relations

The Kroger Co. has promoted Timothy Massa from VP of corporate human resources, talent development, to group VP, human resources and labor relations.

In his new role, Massa will take responsibility for the company’s labor relations following the retirement of Paul Heldman, executive VP, secretary and general counsel, in May.

"Tim is a trusted human resources professional and valued partner," said Mike Ellis, Kroger's president and COO.  "In just four years at Kroger, leaders and associates throughout the company know they can count on him for strategic direction and advice. He leads by example, bringing life to the Kroger Leadership Model through his passion for people and results every day."

Prior to joining Kroger in 2010, Massa served in various human resources leadership roles for 21 years at Procter & Gamble. 

Cincinnati-based Kroger operates 2,640 supermarkets and multi-department stores in 34 states and the District of Columbia under two dozen local banner names including Kroger, City Market, Dillons, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry's, Harris Teeter, Jay C, King Soopers, QFC, Ralphs and Smith's.
