- Albertsons and Vons have named a number of assistant sales managers and members of the company's marketing team, which includes several notable figures for the produce team, whose combined experience with Albertsons amounts to over a century. The Albertsons-Safeway merger is forecast to come through officially soon.
- The announcement covers assistant sales managers for all sectors, from produce, grocery, and total alcohol beverage to meat, deli, and bakery.
- The appointments follow reveals of other key members in the Albertsons-Safeway merger, such as corporate and regional teams and the executive leadership team.
Plenty of shakeups have surrounded the Albertsons-Safeway merger, including the sale of 168 stores last month. The merger itself was part of a $9 billion deal that enabled private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LP to purchase Safeway, a process that began last March.
