His work extended to onsite engagement, onboarding support, and training participation to make sure of a clear path to success for online shopping. “I love the engagement of the independent grocers. They are a cornerstone of their communities and have experienced prodigious change over the last decade. I find my work with them to be personally rewarding,” shared King.
