Albertsons Companies has filled two new roles within its labor relations leadership team, including naming Dan Dosenbach to the newly created role of senior vice president of labor relations.
Reporting to Dosenbach in the new role of group vice president of labor relations is Brent Bohn, currently vice president of human resources and labor relations for the company’s Southern California division.
The new structure was created following the retirement of Andy Scoggin (left) from Albertsons after nearly 30 years with the company.
“The partnerships we forge with our unions have always been critical for our business. Those relationships are especially important today, as we prioritize the health of our associates and customers while providing essential services to our neighbors,” said Mike Theilmann, EVP & CHRO of Albertsons Companies. “We are grateful for the leadership that Andy Scoggin provided through so many important negotiations, which helped build the collaborative relationships we have today.”
“We didn’t have to look beyond our own bench to fill these critical roles,” Theilmann continued. “Dan Dosenbach and Brent Bohn are exceptional leaders with deep roots in the grocery industry. They bring unparalleled labor relations experience to the team, along with a genuine concern and appreciation for the frontline teams that serve customers every day. We thank Andy for mentoring and developing leaders like Dan and Brent. ”
Dosenbach joined the grocery industry in 2006 as a director of labor relations at Supervalu, after serving as general counsel for United Food & Commercial Workers Union Local 1546 in Chicago. He was promoted to vice president of labor relations in 2011, and joined Albertsons in 2013 when ACME Markets was acquired. At that time, he was named to his most recent role of vice president of human resources and labor relations at ACME.

In 2007, he was promoted to vice president of labor relations with responsibilities for multiple divisions, including Southern California, Portland, Seattle and Intermountain. In 2013, he was promoted to his most recent role of vice president of labor relations and human resources. Before coming to Albertsons, Bohn was at the law firm Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker.
