The Golub Corp., parent company of Price Chopper Supermarkets, Market 32 and Market Bistro, has named Scott Grimmett president and COO. He is the first person who is not a Golub to hold the title. Grimmett continues to report to CEO Jerry Golub. Neil Golub remains executive chairman of the board.
Grimmett joined Price Chopper as EVP and COO in 2012, bringing with him 37 years of experience at Safeway, the last nine of which were spent serving as president of that chain’s 143-store Denver division.
“We knew that Scott had the skills to help propel our company forward in an increasingly competitive marketplace and challenging economy,” said Jerry Golub. “He is an innovative and strategic leader with a customer-centric focus and deep understanding of how to make the shopping experience a true differentiator. He has made a tremendous contribution to the evolution of our brand over the last three years.”
Added Neil Golub, “Scott’s strategic vision has guided the creation of our new brand architecture, which serves as the foundation for our next generation of stores and our transformation to Market 32. And his leadership in implementing and communicating what defines our new brand is helping us to deliver the multi-faceted, progressive shopping experience that the customers of today and tomorrow are seeking.”
