He was recently promoted to his new role of President of the Michigan Division, effective August 1st, succeeding Scott Hays, who was promoted earlier this month to President of the Cincinnati/Dayton Division role.

Ken DeLuca, President, Michigan, KrogerDeLuca has much experience with Kroger, having begun his career in the Michigan Division in 1988 as a Store Clerk. Once he graduated from Detroit-based Wayne State University, DeLuca went through Kroger’s management training program in 1990.

Now, he has landed back in his old Michigan Division stomping grounds.
