The Idaho-based grocery chain, Albertsons, has appointed Jim Donald as its new Chief Executive Officer.

The new CEO will replace Bob Miller, who will continue in his position as Chairman of the Board.

“Jim Donald has built an exceptional career in retail,” remarked Bob Miller.

“His knowledge of our company and industry is unmatched, and I know his contributions will be invaluable as we enter the next chapter of Albertsons Companies.”

The newly-appoint CEO also worked for Albertsons for 15 years, starting 1976, becoming the Vice President of Operations in Arizona.

“Albertsons Companies is uniquely positioned to operate in both a 'four walls' traditional environment and the 'no walls' world of technology,” stated Jim Donald.

“We serve 34 million customers each week across our 2,300-plus stores and serve 5.5 million patients in our 1,700-plus pharmacies.”

“That's a significant food, health and wellness footprint. We're well positioned to serve the evolving needs of today's customer, wherever and whenever they choose to shop with us.”

“I am looking forward to leading this dynamic company as we focus on innovation and customer-centric retailing in all its forms.”
