Albertsons LLC Names Two More Executives

BOISE, Idaho — Albertsons LLC here named two more former Albertsons executives Monday to its management team: Daniel Salemi as president of the company's pharmacy division, a new corporate position; and Jerry Callahan as vice president, produce merchandising.

Salemi, who will be based in the Chicago area, will be responsible for continuing to grow sales and profits across all pharmacy operations; he will report to Justin Dye, incoming chief operating officer of New Albertsons Inc.
