Big Y Names New CFO
Big Y Foods Inc. has appointed Theresa Jasmin as the company's new CFO, reporting to Charles D'Amour, president and CEO, and Big Y's board of directors. Jasmin has been at the supermarket chain since 2005, holding positions of increasing responsibility including controller, senior director of finance and, most recently, vice president of finance.
Jasmin is taking over the position from William Mahoney, who recently retired. Prior to Big Y, Jasmin worked at Friendly Ice Cream Corp., holding senior management positions in treasury and accounting.

She filled a position previously held by John Schnepp who retired.
Last fall, Big Y made three other noteworthy appointments, including the appointment of Eric Swensen as VP of fresh foods. Swensen joined Big Y in 1985, starting as a part-time service clerk. Prior to his recent appointment he served as VP of center store.
