Brixmor Property Group has appointed Thomas W. “Tad” Dickson, former CEO of Harris Teeter Supermarkets, to the company’s board of directors. Dickson brings nearly two decades of experience in the grocery industry, complementing Brixmor’s position as the nation’s largest owner of wholly owned grocery-anchored community and neighborhood shopping centers, accruing to Brixmor. Dickson takes the seat vacated by Nadeem Meghji, who resigned from the board of directors in January as a result of The Blackstone Group’s obligation to cede its majority position on the board once it ceased to own a majority of the shares of the company.

Dickson served as CEO of North Carolina-based Harris Teeter from February 1997 until Harris Teeter’s sale to The Kroger Co. in January 2014; he was chairman of its board of directors from March 2006 to January 2014. Prior to serving as CEO, he held various executive posts at Harris Teeter (formerly Ruddick Corp.) and its former subsidiary, the textile company American & Efird. Dickson served as president of Harris Teeter from February 1997 through March 2012 and, before his election as president and CEO, he served as EVP of Harris Teeter from February 1996 to February 1997. Prior to that time, from February 1994 to February 1996, Dickson served as president of American & Efird; from February 1991 to February 1994 he served as its EVP. He was board chairman of The Pantry from April 2014 until its acquisition by a U.S. subsidiary of Alimentation Couche-Tard last month.

“Tad has a thorough understanding of the highly competitive grocery business,” said Brixmor CEO Michael Carroll. “In addition, he was the author of a very successful real estate strategy at Harris Teeter that has numerous similarities to our strategy at Brixmor. We look forward to benefiting from his insight and experience as we continue to build value in our company.”
