Chief Executive Office
Kris knows a thing or two about the grocery business, having grown up in her family's stores. She has been a key part of Kowalski's Markets since its inception in 1983. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of St. Thomas and then received her master's in Business Administration from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. After more than two decades of training and education, she earned the position of Chief Operating Officer and has since moved into the role of Chief Executive Officer. Kris is responsible for Kowalski's stores and company operations and always keeps one eye on daily operations and the other on future company goals and needs.
