“This is the strongest leadership team I’ve worked with in my 50+ years in this industry,” said Bob Miller, Chairman and CEO of Albertsons Companies, who has served as President since April of 2015. “I asked Wayne to join Albertsons LLC in 2006 to lead our Rocky Mountain Division. Since that time, he’s led three different divisions, helped to negotiate and manage some of our most significant acquisitions, and successfully turned around some of our toughest assets. He’s a remarkable leader with tremendous grocery retail acumen, and I’m pleased that he’s accepted this new role.”
