Sysco’s success: The power of their people

Robinson says the Sysco team are not just rock stars — they’re superheroes with super powers.

It is often said that the success of a person can be measured by the success of the people working with them. In the case of Marie Robinson, executive vice president and chief supply chain officer at Sysco, her ability to work closely with her field teams and immerse herself in the day-to-day operations is what truly fuels her professional life. She firmly believes that her success stems from her knack for attracting brilliant talents who surpass her own capabilities. It’s undoubtedly a daunting task, but one that Robinson embraces wholeheartedly.

However, Robinson’s focus extends far beyond assembling a team of exceptional individuals. What sets her apart is her genuine care for the people she works with. She strives to ensure that each team member knows that she values and genuinely cares about their well-being.

When asked about what makes the people she works with true rock stars, Robinson takes it a step further, describing them as superheroes with incredible powers. She acknowledges their abilities to transform ideas into reality and to keep operations running smoothly. For Robinson, connecting with the members of her team is not just a nice-to-have; it is an essential element of achieving company-wide success.

Robinson understands that true leadership goes beyond delegating tasks and making decisions from a distance. By immersing herself in the day-to-day operations and engaging closely with her team members, she cultivates an environment where everyone feels supported, valued, and inspired to perform at their best.
