January 24th, 2013

CARLISLE, Pa. – Ahold USA has appointed Mark McGowan to the position of executive vice president of merchandising. He reports to James McCann, chief operating officer.

Mark McGowan

A veteran of more than 21 years with Ahold USA companies, McGowan most recently held the post of executive vice president of supply chain for Ahold USA. He joined Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. in 1991 as a management trainee and held such positions as senior vice president and general manager of Stop & Shop’s New York division; senior VP of sales; and senior VP of Stop & Shop’s New England division. In 2009 he was named president of the New England division.

After taking on responsibility for supply chain last year, McGowan led the Ahold USA merchandising team on an interim basis after the departure of Jeff Martin, who had been executive VP of merchandising and marketing. "With more than 20 years of experience at Ahold USA companies, Mark is well suited to take on his newest leadership role with the company," said McCann. "Mark’s strong experience in operations, supply chain and divisional leadership will be a great asset to our merchandising function."

Reporting directly to McGowan are Jeff Dichele, senior VP of nonperishables merchandising; John Ruane, interim senior VP of fresh merchandising; Jodie Daubert, senior VP of sales development; Raymond McCall, senior VP of pharmacy and HBC merchandising; and Roger Wheeler, senior VP, Oracle program lead.
