Friday, February 8th, 2019

After announcing the retirement of a longstanding executive late last month, Publix Super Markets has detailed new plans to elevate Director of Manufacturing Doug Harris to the vacated executive role. Effective May 1, Harris will start as Vice President of Manufacturing, overseeing the retailer’s seven fresh production plants and printing services.

Doug Harris, Vice President of Manufacturing, PublixHarris has been part of the Publix family since joining in 1998 as an Industrial Engineer in Lakeland, Florida, where the company also operates its headquarters. After having worked in various positions in logistics and manufacturing, Harris transferred to the company’s Atlanta dairy plant in 2006 to be a Production Operations Manager.

Harris was subsequently promoted to General Manager of the Atlanta dairy plant in 2013. He then transferred back to Lakeland last year when he was promoted to his current directorial role.

Todd Jones, CEO and President, Publix“Doug has the ability to think strategically about how Publix manufacturing can continue to differentiate us from our competition,” said CEO Todd Jones. “He creates strong, collaborative relationships that show how much he genuinely cares for his associates and Publix. I’m excited to see him continue to grow his Publix career.”
