Wojtkowiak joined Kroger in 1981 as a utility clerk in Toledo, Ohio. He has held several leadership positions, including his most recent role as VP of operations for Kroger’s Columbus Division where he is responsible for the operations of 122 stores and more than 18,000 associates in Ohio, Michigan and the panhandle of West Virginia.

“I am thrilled to accept this opportunity to serve customers and associates in the Atlanta Division,” said Wojtkowiak. “My 34 years with Kroger have been incredibly rewarding, and I look forward to the next step in my career.”

Wojtkowiak has an associate’s degree in business management from the University of Toledo. He is active in his community and serves on the board of directors for The Buckeye Ranch—a nonprofit organization in Central and southwestern Ohio offering specialized mental health programs for youth and their families. He and his wife, Amy, have three children and plan to move to Atlanta from Columbus.

Kroger’s Atlanta Division operates more than 186 stores in Georgia, eastern Alabama and South Carolina.
