Hattie Hill, CEO and president of the Women’s Foodservice Forum (WFF), has announced her retirement after spending six years spent with the development organization.
Hill was appointed as the forum’s boss in 2013 and will continue to serve until a replacement is found.
The announcement came as the WFF ended its yearly leadership conference, which was held in Dallas.
In a statement reported by Nation’s Restaurant News, Hill said: “My six years at WFF have been the most impactful of my entire career.
“WFF has given me the opportunity to champion gender parity in the workplace and introduced me to thousands of talented women who, I have no doubt, will run not only the food industry but the world, in my lifetime.”
Prior to joining WFF, Hill founded and served as CEO at Hattie Hill Enterprises, a management consultancy.
Hill is also a professional speaker and has written a handful of corporate books, including “Smart Women, Smart Choices.”
The WFF, founded in 1989, is a leadership development organization for women in the foodservice industry.
