Sarah Bovim has signed on at Albertsons Cos. as senior VP-government affairs & public policy.

She joins the Boise-based supermarket chain giant after a 15-year spin at Whirlpool, where she exited as VP-government relations & international trade policy.

“We are passionate about making a meaningful difference in our neighborhoods and planet and are committed to continuing to reduce our climate impacts,” Albertsons CEO Vivek Sankaran said in announcing the program.
