My name is Netse (Netselgeye) Lytle and I’m proud to serve as your new General Manager. I’ve been working in the corporate retail grocery industry for 20 years and was drawn to Wild Oats by your co-op principles, community engagement, and the emphasis on local, natural and organic products.
Throughout my career I’ve fine tuned my management style and put a focus on taking care of our number one asset, the Team. I now have the privilege of working with like-minded individuals with their own ideas for the success of this cooperatively owned business. Under the direction of our selfless Board of Directors, and with the assistance of our managers and staff, we’ll continue to move the store in a direction in line with the ideals of our member-owners.
Thank you to everyone who has already taken the time to introduce yourself and welcome me to Wild Oats. As we discussed, you’ll be seeing improved store conditions and more offerings soon. I’ve been preparing for this opportunity for the last 20 years and I couldn’t be more pleased with the level of commitment from all parties involved. I’m honored to join this community and look forward to meeting more of you and displaying my level of commitment to making our co-op better every day.
