Publix celebrates its 90th anniversary this year. It has grown into the largest employee-owned company in the United States. Publix operates more than 1,200 stores in seven states, with more than $36 billion in annual revenue. Jones has been with Publix for 40 years, starting at 17 as a front-service clerk in New Smyrna Beach.

EDUCATION New Smyrna Beach High School
SOMETHING SURPRISING I am a music lover of all genres, and I play the drums.
ALTERNATE CAREER? Servant leadership is in my blood, so I would remain in the service industry.
PHILANTHROPIC PASSION As a food retailer, we have a responsibility to reduce food waste. Over the past 10 years, Publix has donated more than $2 billion in food to Feeding America-member food banks and other non-profits. And we’ve committed to another $2 billion over the next 10 years.
