SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Jerel Golub will become president and CEO of the parent company of Price Chopper Supermarkets on Jan. 1, the company said.
Golub Corp. said Golub would assume leadership of the 128-store chain after a nearly 30-year career with Price Chopper. Current CEO and chairman Neil Golub, who served as president from 1982 to 2010, will continue as executive chairman. The company also is appointing Scott Grimmett, formerly president of Safeway's Denver division, as EVP and COO.
"It's gratifying to realize the value of succession planning at all levels of our organization," Neil Golub said. "In addition to mentoring young talent, succession provides for the continuity of values and collaborative leadership style that are so critical to success."
