Today, Supervalu announced that it has named Janel Haugarth to lead its independent business organization, replacing Leon Bergmann, who has left the company. Haugarth’s appointment as president of Supervalu’s independent business and business optimization organizations is effective immediately, the company stated.
Haugarth will continue leading Supervalu’s business optimization efforts. She is a 35-year Supervalu veteran, the company pointed out, and, now, returns to the independent business organization. Supervalu asserted that she brings knowledge and leadership in serving more than 2,000 independent grocery retailers Supervalu supplies nationwide.
During her time with the company, Haugarth led the supply chain services division from 2006 to 2011, Supervalu noted, and served as executive vp/merchandising and logistics from 2011 to 2012.
“We thank Leon for his contributions, and we wish him well,” said Wayne Sales, Supervalu president, CEO and chairman. “Fortunately, Janel is able to step right into the position and bring an immediate wealth of experience, strong retailer relationships and a tremendous passion for our independent business, having spent the majority of her career in this area. We are confident in her ability and the skills she brings to this role during this critical time in our company’s turnaround.”
