Chris Rupp said yesterday that she will depart Albertsons, where she has served as Chief Customer and Digital Officer since 2019, and join Victoria’s Secret & Co., where she will take on the role of Chief Customer Officer.
Victoria' Secret said in a press release that "she will be responsible for creating a seamless store and digital commerce business globally and will be accountable for sales and profitability across both channels."
Prior to joining Albertsons, Rupp spent time at both Microsoft and Amazon, where she led Fulfillment by Amazon and launched Amazon Prime Day.

This certainly is a loss for Albertsons, where Rupp has been highly thought of. But the good news for Rupp and the bad news for Albertsons is that people who do well get recognized and the opportunity to do more … often elsewhere.
