Supervalu Inc., a retail grocery channel, has announced that Sue Klug, president of its Albertsons Southern California division, will be leaving the company this April, resulting in the appointments of new leadership in three of the company's market areas.
Replacing Klug will be Dan Sanders, current president of Supervalu's ACME Markets division, based in Philadelphia. Sanders joined ACME in 2010 and led the division. Sanders came to ACME from United Supermarkets in Lubbock, Texas, where he served as the CEO for six years. During his time with United, Sanders served on the board of directors for the Western Association of Food Chains or WAFC.
Keith Wyche will become the new president at ACME. He currently serves as the president of Supervalu's Cub Foods division. Wyche has improved sales trends and grown profitability since joining the company in 2010. Wyche began his career in sales, marketing and management roles with AT&T and IBM.
Brian Audette has been named president of Cub Foods. Audette began his grocery career working in Pick 'N Save stores in Wisconsin. He served as the group vice president of independent sales, marketing and merchandising within the supply chain organization before being named business transformation officer in 2010. Last year, he was promoted to group vice president of merchandising transformation and process improvement.
"Sue has been a champion of diversity and environmental stewardship for the company, and has been honored within the industry and community for these efforts," said Pete Van Helden, Supervalu executive vice president of retail operations. "We thank Sue for her years of service and leadership in Southern California and wish her well as she moves on to dedicate her talent and attention to long-time personal and professional ambitions."
