Krasdale is an independent, family-owned grocery distribution, merchandising and marketing services company. With its base of operations in New York, Krasdale has 20 stores in New Jersey that operate under the CTown and Bravo supermarket banners.

“As a colleague and industry friend for more than 25 years, it was a special moment to honor Gus at this year’s Night of Distinction event,” said Linda Doherty, president and CEO of the NJFC. 

“Gus’ contributions to the Food Council and our industry over the course of his career exemplify why he is so deserving of such recognition. His high standard for excellence and collaboration are qualities for future Industry Achievement Award honorees to emulate.”

Lebiak and three grocery executives were also honored by the New Jersey Food Council at its Night of Distinction event at the Palace at Somerset.

“Gus has always worked to create a culture of collaboration that has been an important driver of success,” said Thatcher Krasne, CEO and president of Alpha 1 Marketing, Krasdale’s marketing and merchandising division.

“Since taking over at the helm of the company nearly two years ago, Gus has navigated unprecedented supply-chain crises while also driving growth in key markets. I offer my congratulations to Gus on this well-deserved recognition.”

The New Jersey Food Council is the Garden State’s pre-eminent trade association representing 1,200 retail food stores, wholesalers, manufacturing and service companies that employ more than 250,000 employees in New Jersey.
