Minneapolis -- Supervalu announced that it is restructuring its executive leadership team to ensure alignment around the company’s goals and to better drive and execute the company’s business turnaround.
Kevin Holt has taken on an expanded role as president of Supervalu Retail. In this position, Holt will drive the overall strategy for the company’s traditional retail and pharmacy divisions, including overseeing the marketing and merchandising functions.
