CINCINATTI —Kroger not only has indicated that The Little Clinic is an “essential part” of its commitment to health and wellness for its customers, but also has appointed Kroger executive Michael Stoll—who has extensive experience in healthcare benefits—to take the reigns of The Little Clinic business.
Stoll, whose new title is CEO of The Little Clinic, comes with 34 years of experience at Kroger in corporate benefits, human resources management and store operations. In his most recent position as VP corporate benefits, Stoll played a key role in developing the healthcare strategy and pension plans for Kroger’s 334,000 full- and part-time associates.
“The Little Clinic is an essential part of Kroger’s commitment to health and wellness for all of the customers we serve. Mike’s extensive experience in healthcare benefits and customer insight will guide us as we continue to look for innovative ways to build on the shared expertise in our clinics and our stores,” stated David Dillon, chairman and CEO of Kroger.
Promoted to VP corporate benefits, succeeding Stoll, is Theresa Monti. Prior to her promotion, Monti served as director of corporate health-and-welfare benefit programs for Kroger. In her new role, she will lead the development, implementation and administration of policies and strategies for the company-sponsored health, welfare and retirement benefit plans. Prior to joining Kroger in 1999, she held national account management positions with both Kaiser Permanente and Prudential Health Care.
