Bill Mayo, who spent the past 29 years at Wakefern Food Corp., will be joining Save A Lot’s executive leadership team as chief development officer.

Most recently, Mayo held the position of chief administrative officer where he led strategic business initiatives that drove efficiencies leveraging analytics of store-level demand management and directed business development of the international wholesale sales division to increase sales and net gross profit.  

In his new role, Mayo will lead the strategic growth of Save A Lot’s licensed retail business to support and strengthen the brand.

“With his strong track record of success in the grocery business, Bill brings a deep knowledge and understanding of the complex undertakings involved with program development, comprehensive go-to-market strategy and project management,” said CEO Fred Boehler of Save A Lot.

Mayo welcomed the new opportunity.

“I’m looking forward to joining this talented team of executives and building strong relationships with our independent retailers who are committed to providing high quality, low-cost fresh food for their customers while making a positive impact in their local areas,” he said. “I believe in Save A Lot’s unique business model, and I am excited to grow the business alongside a passionate and talented team.”
