Weis Markets said Tuesday that former Lowes Foods executive Dennis G. Hatchell has been appointed to its board of directors, replacing Dr. Glenn D. Steele Jr., who resigned.
The change was effective July 9, the Sunbury, Pa., company said in a filing to federal securities regulators.
Steele was an independent director and a member of the company's audit and compensation committees. His resignation was not the result of a disagreement with the company on any matter relating to the company's operations, policies or practices, Weis said.
Hatchell is a former president of Lowes Foods and COO of its parent company Alex Lee Inc. More recently, Hatchell was CEO of the Pantry, a North Carolina-based convenience store chain which was acquired by Alimentation Couche-Tard earlier this year. Hatchell will succeed Steele on Weis’ audit and compensation committees.
