Davidson’s responsibilities in his new role include oversight of all current sales and merchandising departments, marketing, customer insights, central kitchen and warehouse. He has been with Buehler’s since 2016 as the EVP of store operations. Previous to this, Davidson worked for Price Chopper Supermarkets in several roles including regional VP and SVP of store operations.
Davidson will continue to report to Dan Shanahan, president and CEO, and will continue in his capacity as an officer of Styx Holding.
