Gladstone and Liberty Hy-Vee District Director Ina Cavin has been named to the corporation’s Hall of Fame.
The honor was presented at the Hy-Vee annual stockholders meeting in December. Executive Vice President and Chief Retail Officer Kevin Sherlock praised Cavin’s leadership and goal-oriented approach as key reasons for recognition.
“Ina has done a tremendous job leading her stores this past year,” Sherlock said. “Ina is very goal-driven, and she has very specific goals for every area of her stores that she uses to push her teams to achieve. Ina always brings a lot of energy to the job, and you can feel it in her stores. She is great at executing corporate initiatives and uses her leadership and autonomy to go above and beyond, adding her own flair to each ad or event.”
Cavin’s 19-year career with Hy-Vee began in Independence as a full-time assistant manager. She served there and in Liberty stores until 2012, when she received her first store director position in Ottumwa, Ia., then later in Olathe.
Cavin is a graduate of Emporia High School in Emporia, Kansas. She also earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Mississippi and a master’s degree in management from Friends University. She and her husband Andy have three children.
