OAK BROOK, Ill. – Rachel Bishop, a group vice president at Walgreen Co., has been hired as senior vice president and chief strategy officer at TreeHouse Foods Inc.
The food manufacturer said Tuesday that Bishop will be a key member of the TreeHouse executive team and be based at its corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill. She reports to Sam Reed Chairman, president and chief executive officer.
Previously, Bishop spent five years at Walgreens, most recently as group vice president of retail development. Before that, she consulted at McKinsey & Co. with consumer packaged goods and retailer clients on marketing, strategy and innovation.
