BY Marianne Wilson

St. Louis — Panera Bread Company on Tuesday said that chairman and co-CEO Ron Shaich will once again serve as the company’s sole CEO starting on Aug. 1. Bill Moreton, who currently serves as co-CEO and president, plans to transition to an executive vice chairman role in order to spend more time on a family matter.

Moreton commented: "As a result of this family matter, I have found myself unable to travel and am now clear I will be challenged to fully execute my responsibilities as president and Co-CEO of Panera Bread.”

Shaich is Panera’s founder and longtime CEO, having served as sole CEO from May 1994 to May 2010 and Co-CEO from January 1988 to May 1994 and March 2012 to present.

In other news, Panera’s net income rose to $48.1 million in the first quarter, which ended March 26, from $41.2 million a year earlier.

NRF applauds Senate vote on Marketplace Fairness Act

BY Staff Writer

New York — The National Retail Federation applauded a Senate vote to proceed with debate on S.743, an act to level the sales tax field for online and brick-and-mortar stores.

NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay issued the following statement: “NRF applauds today’s Senate vote on the Marketplace Fairness Act and we commend Senators Enzi, Durbin, Alexander and Heitkamp for their skilled leadership in moving this legislation ahead.”


“This is fundamentally about fairness and the need for government to end its discriminatory sales tax policy that disadvantages local, community-based retailers in favor of remote and online sellers,” he added.

“Despite what the opponents say this is not a new tax,” the statement continued. “The Marketplace Fairness Act is a common-sense piece of legislation, which allows states to enforce their own sales tax rules on remote sales, protects small business owners and e-commerce entrepreneurs with a robust small business exemption, and finally allows retailers to compete in a free and fair marketplace.”

The NRF hopes to see Senate action before Thursday morning.
