In honor of International Women’s Day on Sunday, March 8, 2020 we are celebrating a few of the many amazing women that work at Brothers Marketplace, including…
Krystle Bigler, the Store Directors of our Weston location, has been with Brothers Marketplace for 3 years, with a long career beforehand at Roche Bros., including opening our Dowtown Crossing store! Krystle most enjoys working alongside her colleagues each and every day, which allows her have a direct impact in a way that helps strengthen the team. Her favorite part about her job is having the ability to encourage others to be their best and accomplish the goals they’ve set and ultimately being able to share those successes throughout the company. Krystle’s advice for upcoming professionals is to take pride in your work and focus on building a positive relationship with colleagues, customers, and the people around you to work toward gaining their respect.
Jennifer Pizzutti, the Store Director of our Waltham location, has been with Roche Bros. and Brothers Marketplace for 19 years. Jenn is proud to represent our female Store Directors by being the third in company history. She found that by transitioning from Roche Bros. to Brothers Marketplace stores, Jenn was able to find the environment where she fit most naturally. The culture of Brothers Marketplace not only supports the local community but encourages creativity and an ability to think outside the box. One of the most challenging parts of her role is being able to keep every facet of the store running without skipping a beat which has allowed her to empower her team and create growth. In her free time, Jenn enjoys going on adventures, spending time with her family, and chasing around her two year old son. Her advice to young professionals is to “think outside the box, don’t be afraid to stand out, and be yourself!”
Maribeth Grant who is currently the Manager of Customer Service, has been with our company for 26 years. Being in Customer Service gives Maribeth the opportunity to work with people at all levels of the organization and build a team that can provide a great customer experience. The most challenging part of this role is that between Brothers Marketplace and Roche Bros., we have 1800 associates working in the front end of our stores meaning that the team truly needs to work together in order to build relationships and support one another. Maribeth finds that having the ability to empower the customer service team with the tools they need to leave a positive lasting impression on our customers in most rewarding. Her advice for upcoming professionals is to always maintain integrity. When you speak up for what’s right, even if it is not the most popular opinion, you will always be able to hold your head high and be proud of yourself at the end of the day. Outside of work, Maribeth enjoys going to Cape Cod with her husband and daughter.
These women are just a few of the incredible members of our Roche Bros. and Brothers Marketplace family. Krystle, Jenn, and Maribeth will all be featured in this year’s “Women of Influence in the Food Industry” published by The Griffin Report of the Northeast to honor the outstanding women in our business. Please stop in their stores and congratulate them in person! We are so proud of all of you, thank you!
