Kroger names new president for Cincinnati/Dayton division

Marks third Kroger executive in one month

CINCINNATI — Retail giant Kroger has named a new divisional president, replacing an executive who recently was promoted to SVP retail operations.

Sukanya Madlinger, who worked for Kroger for nearly 25 years, now will be president of the company's Cincinnati/Dayton division — which operates 110 stores in Cincinnati, Dayton, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana — replacing Geoffrey Covert. Covert was named SVP retail operations for Kroger after the retirement of Paul Scutt.

Prior to her new position, Madlinger served as the retailer's VP drug, general merchandise and pharmacy merchandising.
