Supervalu has appointed a new Vice President of Meat Merchandising, Tom Sargent. In Sargent's new role, he will lead innovation and growth for SUPERVALU’s overall meat and seafood capabilities, including enterprise buying, vendor negotiations and product quality, according to a press release. Sargent will also lead efforts to advance the company’s private brand meat sales. The company has also named John Jefferson Vice President of Produce Merchandising

“Customers are looking for the freshest high quality produce and meat in our stores, and providing both is a top priority for us at SUPERVALU,” said Mark Van Buskirk, executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and retail. “Adding both John and Tom to oversee these areas will help us accelerate this effort. I’m pleased to welcome them to the team and look forward to the positive impact this will have on our customers.

Both Jefferson and Sargent join SUPERVALU from Kroger where Jefferson’s roles included VP of bakery and deli, as well as administration and merchandise support. Sargent most recently led efforts in protein strategies and case-ready meats, leading to a significant increase in annual sales.

Congrats on the new additions and growing family!
