National Nonprofit Taps Dallas CEO

Fritzi WoodsFritzi Woods has made her mark on Dallas’ business scene, holding a top post at The Dallas Morning News/Belo and turning around PrimeSource FoodService Equipment. A couple of years ago, she was a finalist for Ernst & Young’s prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year award. Now Woods (pictured) is moving onto the national stage to become president and CEO of the Minneapolis-based Women’s Foodservice Forum. The WFF is a leadership and education group for women in the food-service industry, and the industry’s key voice on gender diversity. Woods won’t be abandoning her hometown, though. “I’ll be commuting to Minnesota a lot initially,” she says. She doesn’t know how long she’ll commute after starting the new gig in May, but says the forum’s Minnesota lease expires in 2011. So, might she move the nonprofit to Dallas at that point? Says Woods: “That’s definitely an opportunity.”
