SpartanNash Names Yvonne Trupiano Chief Human Resources Officer

SpartanNash appointed Yvonne Trupiano to SVP, chief human resources officer, effective Oct. 3. Trupiano succeeds Jerry Jones, who is retiring, having held that position since 2009.

Trupiano reports to Dennis Eidson, CEO and chairman, and is responsible for developing, communicating and implementing the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based wholesaler’s human resources strategy. She will oversee all aspects of human resources, including talent development, labor relations, compensation and benefits, payroll, and HR operations, management and development.

“Yvonne’s success with creating and implementing diversity and inclusion strategies to increase female and veteran representation within operations, improving employee satisfaction scores, and positioning the company as a Great Place to Work by the Great Place to Work Institute align with our current initiatives,” Edison said. He also noted that Yvonne’s extensive merger and acquisition experience integrating teams, systems and operations is advantageous to SpartanNash, which is poised for growth.

Eidson also noted that the company is sad to say goodbye to Jerry Jones. “His leadership throughout our transformational merger in 2013 was critical to our integration. He also played a key role in our search and selection process. We wish him all the best as he looks forward to returning to his southern roots,” Eidson added.
