Kathleen Barclay Named A YWCA Career Woman Of Achievement

CINCINNATI, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) today congratulated Kathleen Barclay, corporate officer and senior vice president for human resources, for her recognition as a YWCA Career Woman of Achievement. Ms. Barclay was honored along with eight other women at the annual event.

"I am honored and humbled to receive this recognition from the YWCA, a truly exceptional organization in Cincinnati and across the country," said Ms. Barclay. "I am grateful to work in an industry that provides the incredible opportunity to touch the lives of a very large group of women inside and outside our company, each and every day."

Ms. Barclay serves as chair of the board of the National Academy of Human Resources and as a board member of the Human Resource Policy Association. In Cincinnati, she serves on the United Way Women's Leadership Council and as a board member of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

The YWCA Salute to Career Women of Achievement was established in 1980 to increase community awareness and appreciation of the diverse contributions of women in the work force and in the community. The luncheon has evolved into the YWCA's largest fundraising event, sponsored by 150 companies and organizations each year.  All proceeds directly benefit YWCA programs, supporting its mission to eliminate racism and empower women.

Several Kroger executives are previous recipients of this YWCA recognition, including Marnette Perry, senior vice president, strategic initiatives and operations; Lynn Marmer, group vice president of corporate affairs; and Kathy Kelly, president of Kroger Personal Finance.

Kroger, one of the world's largest retailers, employs 343,000 associates who serve customers in 2,424 supermarkets and multi-department stores in 31 states under two dozen local banner names including Kroger, City Market, Dillons, Jay C, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry's, King Soopers, QFC, Ralphs and Smith's. The company also operates 786 convenience stores, 328 fine jewelry stores, 1,169 supermarket fuel centers and 37 food processing plants in the U.S. Recognized by Forbes as the most generous company in America, Kroger supports hunger relief, breast cancer awareness, the military and their families, and more than 30,000 schools and grassroots organizations. Kroger contributes food and funds equal to 160 million meals a year through more than 80 Feeding America food bank partners. A leader in supplier diversity, Kroger is a proud member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber's Million Dollar Club.
