LOS ANGELES — Smart & Final Inc. has promoted Sean Mahony and Matt Reeve to senior vice president roles.

Mahony, named senior vice president of store operations, began his career at Smart & Final almost 27 years ago as a store associate, working at night while attending college. Since 2015, he has served as group vice president of store operations, overseeing the company’s operations team for its 255 locations.

Reeve, named senior vice president of sales and merchandising, has more than 29 years of experience in the grocery industry. He now leads the sales and merchandising team responsible for category management and private label. He joined Smart & Final as a category manager in 2004. In 2008, he helped transform Smart & Final through the launch of its newer, larger format, Smart & Final Extra!, which now accounts for more than 75% of the company’s locations.

“Sean and Matt are two industry veterans with more than a half-century of grocery retail experience between them,” said Dave Hirz, president and chief executive officer of Smart & Final. “We are very fortunate to have them on our team. They are highly intelligent and have similar management styles that include living Smart & Final’s values every day. They’ve both made incredible contributions to Smart & Final over the years, and I’m proud to congratulate them on their much deserved promotions.”
