Quincy, Massachusetts-based Retail Business Services has appointed Marty Wolfe to chief technology officer, joining the information technology leadership team led by Rom Kosla, EVP, IT and chief information officer.

Wolfe is joining Retail Business Services from IBM, where he most recently served as global CTO and VP of IBM’s retail, CPG, logistics and travel industries.

“We’re pleased to welcome Marty to the team,” Kosla said. “His deep experience in retail and related industries, where he was responsible for driving digital transformation, will be valuable as we continue to transform IT for Ahold Delhaize USA companies. As each of our companies continue to serve connected customers and drive aggressive omnichannel growth, the role of IT has never been more important.”

Wolfe brings a combination of business acumen, technical depth and industry expertise to the role, with a deep background in both digital transformation and hybrid cloud journeys.

“I’m excited to join the organization at this pivotal time for Ahold Delhaize USA companies,” Wolfe said. “Retail is rapidly changing and technology is a differentiator that enables retailers’ abilities to compete. I look forward to supporting Retail Business Services in its Evolve IT journey, which is key in enabling Ahold Delhaize USA brands to win now and into the future.”

​Retail Business Services, ranked No. 25 on Fast Company’s 2022 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators, is the services company of grocery retail group Ahold Delhaize USA, providing services to five omnichannel grocery brands, including Food Lion, Giant Food, The Giant Company, Hannaford and Stop & Shop.

Retail Business Services leverages the scale of the local brands to drive synergies and provides industry-leading expertise, insights and analytics to local brands to support their strategies with services including business integrity services, business services, communications and omnichannel service, finance business services, financial planning and analysis, human resources, indirect sourcing, information technology and pharmacy services.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
