New names in retail leadership continue to emerge, in this case in Albertsons’ Labor Relations team. The grocer has named Dan Dosenbach its new Senior Vice President of Labor Relations and Brent Bohn as Group Vice President of Labor Relations.
Dosenbach has nearly 15 years experience in grocery leadership, having signed on as Director of Labor Relations at Supervalu in 2006. He was then promoted to Vice President of Labor Relations in 2013, before joining the Albertsons family when ACME Markets was acquired.
He steps into this new role after serving most recently as Vice President of Human Resources and Labor Relations.
Bohn, who started with Albertsons in 1999 as the Director of Labor Relations for the Southern California Division, will report directly to Dosenbach. He was promoted to Vice President of Labor Relations in 2007, with responsibilities for multiple divisions, including Southern California; Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; and Intermountain. In 2013, he was promoted to his most recent role of Vice President of Labor Relations and Human Resources, with responsibilities for Human Resources, Labor Relations, and Employment Law.
“The partnerships we forge with our unions have always been critical for our business. Those relationships are especially important today, as we prioritize the health of our associates and customers while providing essential services to our neighbors,” said Mike Theilmann, EVP and Chief Human Resources Officer. “We didn’t have to look beyond our own bench to fill these critical roles. Dan Dosenbach and Brent Bohn are exceptional leaders with deep roots in the grocery industry. They bring unparalleled labor relations experience to the team, along with a genuine concern and appreciation for the frontline teams that serve customers every day.”
The new structure follows the retirement of 30-year Albertsons veteran Andy Scoggin.
“We are grateful for the leadership that Andy Scoggin provided through so many important negotiations, which helped build the collaborative relationships we have today,” Thielmann continued. “We thank Andy for mentoring and developing leaders like Dan and Brent.”
Congratulations to Dan Dosenbach and Brent Bohn on their recent appointments, with hearty good wishes to Andy Scoggin on his next adventure.
