Kings Food Markets on Friday announced several promotions within its merchant departments.
“We are so proud to promote these key department leaders within our company,” Judy Spires, president and CEO of the Parsippany, N.J.-based company said. “Our employees continue to raise the bar year after year, constantly making us look ahead to what’s next, and I’m certain that we are even further positioned for growth and innovation in the future.”
Kings’ merchandising promotions include:
• Arthur Goncalves, director of seafood sales and merchandising, has been promoted to VP, produce and floral. An 18-year associate of Kings, Goncalves began his career with Kings as an assistant store manager. He has steadily risen through the ranks of the company since, holding several positions in operations and center store merchandising, engineering, maintenance and construction, demonstrating his business acumen, integrity and initiative to drive the business throughout each role. Most recently, he progressed into perishables merchandising, and under his leadership, the seafood department was recognized by the company as its department of the year.
• Scott Zoeller, VP of deli sales and merchandising, has been promoted to VP of deli, meat and seafood. Zoeller has been with the company since December 2004, serving numerous positions throughout the deli and has built a successful team that has provided tremendous growth in the area of prepared foods, deli and cheese.
• Rick Michener, director of in-store prepared foods and chef operations, has been promoted to Goncalves’ former role as director of seafood sales and merchandising. In just four years at Kings, Michener has held three positions in the business and operations divisions and has been instrumental in helping to bring new and creative concepts from vision to execution, Kings said.
