UNFI hires new IR director
Providence, Rhode Island-based United Natural Foods (UNFI) has hired Faten Freiha as director of investor relations and corporate strategy.
In her new role, which she started on March 26, Freiha is responsible for all aspects of IR and corporate strategy, working with the executive management team. She reports directly to CFO Mike Zechmeister. Her predecessor, Halie O'Shea, left UNFI last November to become a senior research analyst at The Haverford Trust Company.
According to UNFI, Freiha has more than 10 years of IR and finance experience, having spent the last four years with storage and information management services company Iron Mountain as director of IR.
‘We are pleased to welcome Faten to the UNFI team and look forward to leveraging her extensive investor relations background to continue to improve UNFI’s investor communications and engagement,’ Zechmeister says in a statement. ‘In addition, we look forward to her further building upon our corporate strategy efforts as we execute on our growth opportunities.’
