Tom Scott, CEO of Oliver’s Market, a four store-operation in Sonoma County, Calif., will retire Sept. 1, ending a 26-year career with the company. He will be succeeded by company owner and president Steve Maass.
Scott joined Oliver’s Market in 1989, just over a year after the first store opened in Cotati with 13 employees. He played a key role in guiding and building the company, which has a local focus, to four stores and 1,000 employees, culminating in the recent opening of Oliver’s Market in Windsor.
“We have worked side by side for 26 years,” Maass said. “I have relied on Tom’s guidance and leadership through all of our challenges and triumphs. He has also been an excellent ambassador for Oliver’s in the community. He will be greatly missed.”
Stony Point store director Eric Meuse and Windsor store director Scott Gross have been tapped for expanded leadership roles.
Oliver’s carries over 6,000 locally produced products, which account for 26% of sales annually. Sonoma County is located north of San Francisco.
