A successful strategy is often backed by a powerful leadership team, and Dollar Tree is fortifying its executive ring to position the company for future growth and transformation. The grocer has revealed that it will be announcing multiple executive leaders over the next few months, and the first in this string of appointments is Michael Creedon, Jr., who has been named Chief Operating Officer.
“I look forward to joining the Dollar Tree organization at this key stage in its transformation. We will be committed to improving the in-store experience for our shoppers, as Dollar Tree and Family Dollar are well-positioned to be a critical solve for the millions of households dealing with historic inflation,” commented Creedon. “My team will be focused on improving operational processes and efficiencies to better support our store associates and field leaders, and the customers they serve. We will be focused on recruiting, training, and retaining key retail associates and help them build their careers at Dollar Tree.”
Creedon previously held several titles with Advance Auto Parts, joining the company in December 2013. There, he occupied roles such as President, U.S. Stores from 2020 to 2021; as well as Division President for the company’s North Division, including Autopart International, from 2017 to 2020; and President, Autopart International, from 2013 to 2017. Since 2021, he has served as Executive Vice President, U.S. Stores.
“I am extremely pleased to announce that Mike Creedon will be joining the Dollar Tree team as our new Chief Operating Officer. Mike’s impressive career in retail is rooted in a deep knowledge and understanding of his customers,” commented Mike Witynski, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Mike will be instrumental in driving the execution of our strategy, and a key leader supporting our culture transformation in Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, and Dollar Tree Canada stores.”
Witynski also shined a light on the growth of the retailer’s executive team.
“With Mike Creedon’s arrival and our recent appointments of Jeff Davis, Bobby Aflatooni, Larry Gatta, and John Flanigan, we are truly building a world class retail leadership team that will help to accelerate the growth of the Company,” he added. “In the coming months, I will continue to fill key roles and announce new executive team members. We have a bright future and it is an exciting time to be part of Dollar Tree!”
