March 10th, 2014
CINCINNATI – Kroger Co. has appointed Dennis Gibson president of its QFC division.
He succeeds Joe Fey, who was named president of Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic division in January.
The 58-year-old Gibson had been serving as vice president of merchandising in Kroger’s Columbus division.
"Dennis’s experience in both merchandising and retail operations make him a great fit to lead the QFC team," says Mike Ellis, the company’s president and chief operating officer. "Dennis is a strong executive with tremendous dedication to our customers and commitment to our associates. We look forward to the leadership and expertise he will bring to the division."
Gibson brings 38 years of retail industry experience to his new role. This includes joining Fred Meyer in 1984, where he held leadership roles of increasing responsibility for the next 27 years, such as store and district management, regional director and group vice president for store operations.
He was appointed vice president of operations in Kroger’s Columbus division in 2011. And in 2013 Gibson was named vice president of merchandising.
