Tractor Supply Company Names Senior Vice President of Ecommerce
Tractor Supply Company has promoted Letitia Webster, a 2018 RIS Top Women in Retail Tech award winner, to senior vice president of Ecommerce.
“The last 15 years have seen great strides for women, not only in technology roles but other roles as well,” Webster told RIS last year. “The tools and education available, as well as the integration of technology into our everyday lives have made it easier for women to have a seat at the table in the tech world.”

She joined the rural lifestyle retailer in 2014 as the divisional merchandise manager for Omni Channel and has served as the vice president of Omni Channel since March 2015.
