Albertson's shakes up its operating structure

Albertson’s Inc announced major changes in its organizational structure affecting its supply chain, food operations, and Six Sigma Quality functions.
Bob Dunst, executive vice-president and chief technology officer, will add responsibility for the Boise ID-based supermarket giant’s supply chain. This includes procurement, inventory management, distribution, warehousing, and logistics. Dunst, who joined Albertson’s in 2001, served with companies like IBM, Food4Less, American Stores, and Safeway. Clarence Gabriel, formerly executive vice-president–supply chain and asset management, is leaving the firm to pursue other interests.
Paul Gannon, executive vice-president and chief marketing officer, will also handle all the company’s food operations. This includes food division operations, asset protection, and customer service. As a result, the company’s food banners (Acme, Albertson’s, Jewel, Shaw’s, and Star Market) and all six related food divisions will report directly to him. Gannon, who joined Albertson’s in 2004, was previously president and chief executive officer of Shaw’s Supermarkets. Bob Butler, formerly executive vice-president–food operations, has decided to retire after 31 years of service.
Felicia Thornton, executive vice-president and chief financial officer, will add responsibility for the company’s Six Sigma Quality program and the Office of Enterprise Program Management. Before joining Albertson’s in 2001, Thornton was with companies such as Proctor & Gamble, Paramount Pictures, Stride Rite, and the Kroger Co.
