Rosemary Jones, the EVP, chief people officer/legal for Brookshire Grocery Co., is The Shelby Report of the Southwest’s 2022 Woman Executive of the Year.
As humble as she is accomplished, Jones is quick to defer credit for the honor. “I’ve got a team. I work for the best boss. I work with the best executive group and with the best people under me. It takes all of us. It’s not Rosemary Jones that has done it all. I’m here to be this kind of spark,” she said.
“It’s the people around me that make it happen. And just to know that you can make a difference. It’s those partners’ lives. We have to stop and think about how many people’s livelihoods depend on us. And do we make them want to come to work and enjoy work and think highly of their company? You won’t reach every employee. I’ve learned that. But to have a majority or even have the people you work with say that you make a difference, it’s very touching.”
