WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Raley’s Cos. has promoted Jen Warner to president of the Raley’s operating division.
For the past two years, Warner has served as chief administrative officer for the portfolio of operating companies that comprise Raley’s Cos.
In her new role, Warner will lead the Raley’s operating division and will report to Keith Knopf, president and chief executive officer of Raley’s Cos. Edward “Trey” Basha, the former president and CEO of Chandler, Ariz.-based Bashas’, serves as president of Raley’s Bashas’ operating division.
“Jen is a talented and dedicated leader. She has been instrumental in working with the leadership team to execute our long-range strategic plan and complete our recent acquisitions,” Knopf said. “Jen cares deeply about our team and the communities served by Raley’s stores. We are fortunate to have such an agile and capable leader to step into this important leadership role at this time of growth and transformation.”
As president of the Raley’s operating division, Warner will lead the retail brands of Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill Foods and Raley’s ONE Market, representing 123 stores and distribution center operations in California and Nevada.
Warner will continue to serve as the president of Apium Logistics, which is a separate last-mile delivery services company founded with investment from the Teel family.
“Since joining Raley’s, I’ve had the opportunity to work with our team to build The Raley’s Companies portfolio. It has been an energizing and exciting time, working with dedicated, purpose-driven leaders,” said Warner. “I am honored to serve in this new role as president. I want to thank Keith Knopf, the entire leadership team, the Teel family and the board for the opportunity. We have an incredible team, and I look forward to working closely with our operations leaders and store teams as we continue to grow the business together, with a focus on our people and purpose.”
Before joining Raley’s, Warner held leadership roles in several public companies in the retail and supply chain industries, including Con-way Inc., XPO Logistics and, most recently, Columbia Sportswear.
