Fetch Rewards, the app that helps millions of shoppers save on purchases of groceries and other household essentials, announced that it has hired Rukmini Banerjee to be its Chief People Officer. Banerjee is charged with the creation and oversight of talent development efforts at Fetch. She will establish training programs, design career pathing models, and recruit new talent to the fast growing company.
