US: Ahold units appoint CFO
Stop & Shop and Giant Food, two of the US supermarket formats owned by Ahold, have appointed a new CFO and executive vice president of human resources.
Paula Price replaces current CFO Jim Rojas who previously announced his plans to leave the company.
Price most recently served as SVP, controller and chief accounting officer for CVS/Caremark Corp and previously held leadership roles at JPMorgan Chase, Prudential Financial, Diageo, Kraft Foods and Sears.
Paula Labian replaces John Bussenger as executive vice president of human resources, who assumed the role on an interim basis.
For the past six years, Labian served as chief human resources officer and global vice president of human resources for organics retailer Whole Foods Market.
"We thank John for ensuring that our greatest resource, our associates, had leadership while a search was in process to fill this critical position," Carl Schlicker, president & CEO of Giant Food, said.
