Today’s spotlight: Jenny Holsman Tetreault
Assistant general counsel, field operations, West and Northwest
Background: Tetreault serves as legal counsel for the West and Northwest Region at US Foods, one of the leading foodservice distributors in the United States. In this role, she supports nearly 7,000 associates in 13 states, 70 retail stores, and nearly a dozen functional areas.
Professional advice: “My philosophy as a young attorney was to ‘raise my hand.’ New case, new client, new practice area? In, in, in! By doing this, I expanded my responsibilities, grew my expertise and cultivated a vast professional network. This subsequently helped me move from a firm, to a nonprofit, to an in-house legal role within the healthcare industry, to my current role in food distribution services. So, my advice is, raise your hand.”
Lesson learned in 2020: “Where do I begin?! Lead by example. Stay humble. Seek feedback. Be fully present and engaged. Prioritize. Take time to recharge. Be curious and ask questions. Embrace change.”
Surprising fact: “I was the mascot at Arizona State University — Sparky the Sun Devil. Go Devils!”
