Mark Van Buskirk, Supervalu's EVP of merchandising, marketing, retail and pharmacy, will depart the company effective Saturday, the wholesaler said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Supervalu said it was evaluating succession plans. Van Buskirk's functional areas would report on an interim basis to Bruce Besanko, the company's EVP, COO and CFO, the company added. Van Buskirk will be eligible for severance benefits, which would total $1.28 million, according to Supervalu's 2016 proxy.
Van Buskirk joined Supervalu in 2013 as EVP in March of 2013 following a 20-year career with Kroger, which he served most recently as VP, meat and seafood merchandising and procurement.
