KC's View:
I’ve always had a soft spot for Haggen and its executive team, and have found Becky Skaggs to be exceptionally enthusiastic about her company in particular and the industry in general (the latter through her work with Portland State University’s excellent Food Industry Leadership Center (FILC). Congrats to her on the promotion, and to Haggen for recognizing excellence.
