Linda Cosgrove

Linda joined AWG in 1987 in the Kansas City buying department. Her career focused on Supply Chain functions where she served in multiple positions with increasing responsibility. Not only does Linda possess extensive and legacy knowledge of the AWG Supply Chain process, she has a strong grasp of other wholesale operations such as IT Systems, Procurement, Promotions, Advertising, AWG Brands and Member Services.   Through her career, Linda has proposed, facilitated and implemented projects and directed key departments during  AWG’s tremendous growth.   Her extensive experience within AWG and retail relationships make her uniquely qualified to create robust and relevant internal and retail Learning and Development programs to benefit all areas of the company and for AWG Members.
Linda is passionate about food, our customers, and wholesale grocery operations.  ‘I’m excited to be part of the new energy and focus on culture and employee education.  Adding Learning and Development to our tool box will ensure we have the right people in the right job who know how to succeed.’

When she’s not focused on ‘sharing the knowledge’ you can find Linda with her family, in her garden, on travel adventures and rarely sitting down.
