Tuesday, February 7th, 2023

A wealth of industry expertise and a longstanding career in the grocery space make for one talented leader, and The Save Mart Companies knows this well. Welcoming a new member to its Board of Directors amidst ongoing growth, the retailer has tapped into the experience of cherished industry vet Robert G. Miller (“Bob”).

Robert G. Miller, Board Member, The Save Mart Companies“I am incredibly grateful and honored to join The Save Mart Companies Board of Directors at a time when there is so much opportunity in the grocery industry for growth,” expressed Miller. “This company and its people exemplify the hard-working and passionate spirit of running great stores and serving their communities.”

The industry ace first began his career at 16 years old as a Bottle Sorter at his local Albertsons store and quickly moved to Courtesy Clerk, Department Manager, and ultimately Store Manager. In 1979, he became an Executive Trainee and continued his rapid career trajectory to become Executive Vice President in nine years.

According to the release, Miller left Albertsons for Fred Meyer, where he took on the Chief Executive Officer role from 1991 to 1999 and merged the company with Kroger. He then served as Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer.

Following several central roles with Rite Aid and Wild Oats, Miller returned to Albertsons in 2006, where he grew the company from a strong regional chain of a few hundred stores to over 2,300 stores in over 30 states through acquisitions and mergers with Supervalu and Safeway, served as CEO and Board Chairman, and most recently Chairman Emeritus. Miller was then appointed Non-Executive Chairman of Supervalu from 2013 to 2014.

Shane Sampson, Executive Chairman of the Board, commented on Miller’s recent appointment.

Shane Sampson, Executive Chairman, The Save Mart Companies“Bob’s expertise and passion for the grocery industry are legendary along with his unparalleled track record of being a growth-focused leader,” said Sampson. “For decades, Bob has built great companies by always being people and community-focused as well as mentoring countless individuals including myself, and I am excited to once again collaborate with him and further advance the company's success together.”
