CINCINNATI — Kroger on Tuesday named Matt Perin head of government relations and regulatory affairs.



"Matt's involvement and relationships with leaders in Washington will help advance our federal and state lobbying efforts and elevate Kroger's unique story among these influential stakeholders," stated Dailey, Kroger's senior director of external affairs. "We look forward to having Matt's expertise on the ground in Washington."



Perin will be based in Washington, D.C., where he will be responsible for Kroger's federal government relations efforts, including working with the company's supermarket operating divisions and other subsidiaries to counsel and guide state and local advocacy activities.



Perin previously served as deputy director of government relations for Bayer. Before joining Bayer, he was staff director for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture's Subcommittee on Nutrition & Horticulture. He has also served as a Congressional legislative assistant and political campaign manager.



He is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati.
