Shane Sampson, EVP and chief marketing and merchandising officer of Albertsons Cos., has decided to leave the company at the end of its second fiscal quarter on Sept. 7. The company has launched a search for a successor.

“Shane has been instrumental in building the Albertsons Companies we know today—both at a division level and nationally,” said Vivek Sankaran, president and CEO of Albertsons Cos., headquartered in Boise, Idaho. “Since 2013, he has helped our team turn around operations in addition to building a robust merchandising and marketing function to help support our 2,200 locations. He launched our e-commerce business in key markets and strengthened it in areas where it had operated since 2002, and accelerated the growth of our Own Brands business by envisioning a faster, smarter way to connect with customer needs. He has been a champion for omnichannel growth both internally and with our supplier community. Throughout his years with Albertsons and in the industry, he has mentored countless thousands in running great stores. I know that he will do great work in whatever he chooses to take on next.”

Boise, Idaho-based Albertsons Cos. operates stores across 34 states and the District of Columbia under 20 different banners, as well as meal kit company Plated based in New York City.
