CHESAPEAKE, Va. — Dollar Tree Inc., which is set to announce its fourth quarter results on March 1, is under new management.

Executive chairman Rick Dreiling has taken on the additional role of chief executive officer. Mike Witynski, who has been in leadership positions at Dollar Tree since 2010 and served as CEO since 2020, has stepped down from the board and left the company.

“The opportunity to work with the talented and dedicated team at Dollar Tree has been the most rewarding of my career,” Witynski said. “During this especially dynamic period, we made the historic and consequential move to ‘break the dollar,’ and also rose to the historic opportunity to retool the company’s leadership ranks to face the challenges ahead with fresh eyes. As I depart, I have full confidence that this team will continue to move the company forward through the years ahead.”

Dreiling, 69, joined Dollar Tree as chairman last year. He was previously CEO of Dollar General, holding that position from January 2008 to June 2015.

“We greatly appreciate Mike’s contribution over his career with Dollar Tree, which included the acquisition and integration of Family Dollar, navigating COVID, and contributing to the company’s current transformation strategy,” Dreiling said. “Dollar Tree will continue to thrive, grow and win in the marketplace in this next chapter, and I’m thrilled for the opportunity to work with the extraordinary Dollar Tree team to advance our focus on delighting customers, associates and other key stakeholders.”

Dollar Tree made sweeping leadership changes in last fall, announcing in November the appointments of Jennifer Bohaty as chief compliance officer, Terence Goods as chief diversity officer, Jennifer Silberman as chief sustainability officer and Kristin Tetreault as chief communications officer. Mike Creedon was named chief operating officer in October.
