Jamie Pfuhl, president of the Minnesota Grocers Association since 2006, has informed the MGA’s board of directors that she plans to retire Aug. 30 after 28 years with the organization.

“It has been the privilege of my professional life to serve the Minnesota Grocers Association, first as a team member then as its president,” said Pfuhl, who started with MGA in 1996. “I am very proud of the significant advancements we have made on behalf of this great industry. 

“I extend my deepest gratitude to the MGA team, board of directors and members. Without their support, our shared success would not have been possible. We have a great team and I have complete confidence that the MGA will continue to innovate and thrive.” 

The Minnesota Grocers Association’s successes under Pfuhl’s leadership as president have elevated the industry’s image, advancing careers and raising a collective voice in advocacy. She has led the organization through positive and challenging times, always focusing on the state’s common good.

“During her tenure, Jamie has provided the Minnesota Grocers Association with a clear vision, strong leadership, and admirable dedication,” said Chris Quisberg, board chair. 

“Her passion for the organization’s mission has advanced our industry objectives. We appreciate her tireless advocacy on behalf of our members. She has strengthened the foundation of our storied organization and has elevated the voice of the food industry of Minnesota. She has the profound gratitude of the Board of Directors for her leadership and many years of service.” 

The board of directors will begin to seek her replacement over the next few months. In retirement, Pfuhl plans to continue supporting organizations as a volunteer.
