USA: Albertsons names president of Shaw's division
US grocery retailer Albertsons has named Nicola DiFelice as president of its Shaw's division, which is headquartered in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
Shaw's is a stand-alone division of Albertsons with 207 stores across six New England states operating under both the Shaw's and Star Market banners. It was acquired from UK retail group J Sainsbury.

DiFelice most recently served as senior vice president of marketing at Shaw's for two years. Prior to that she held positions of increasing responsibility in procurement, category management and merchandising.
