Publix shakes up its leadership team

Publix's leadership is undergoing several big changes.

The Lakeland, Fla.-based company, who recently acquired a lease from Winn-Dixie in Alabama, announced that Marcy Benton would be taking over the vice president of human resources role, and John Provenzano would now be the company’s vice president of Public Affairs.

Benton who began her career with the retail chain in 1992 as an accounting clerk, will now be responsible for all functions within the human resources space. She was most recently the director of retail associations and is a recipient of the company’s George W. Jenkins and President’s awards.

Provenzano began his career with the company in 2017, after joining as the vice president of government relations. He was previously the director for the National Association of State Treasurers, or NSAT, and worked in government affairs for Delta Airlines.

“Marcy and John have a passion for Publix and our associates,” Publix CEO & President Todd Jones, said. “I’m excited they will help us continue the growth and success of our company and assist in perpetuating our culture.”
