Raley’s named former Columbia Sportswear executive Jennifer Warner to the new role of chief administrative officer. She will oversee the company’s regulatory, risk management, food safety, sustainability, corporate strategy, and environmental, social and governance programs. Keith Knopf, president and CEO of the 126 store west coast chain, said Warner is the epitome of a purpose-driven leader.

“She places emphasis on achieving positive outcomes, while doing so in a collaborative and socially responsible manner,” Knopf said.

Prior to Columbia Sportswear, Warner was chief developmental officer at AsheWorks Inc., and before that served as global chief compliance officer and general counsel, Americas at XPO Logistics.

Albertsons promoted two executives to fill key labor relations roles. Dan Dosenbach, currently VP of human resources and labor relations in the company’s Acme Markets division, will take on the newly created role of SVP of labor relations. Brent Bohn, currently VP of human resources and labor relations for the grocer’s Southern California division, will become group VP of labor relations and report to Dosenbach. The new structure was created after Andy Scoggin’s retirement from Albertsons and precedes what is expected to be an initial public stock offering this year.

“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, Albertsons EVP and chief human resources officer.

The Fresh Market named former Natural Grocers chief marketing officer Kevin Miller as its new CMO. “Kevin brings to The Fresh Market a deep background in marketing from working with such well-known businesses as Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and ABC News, in addition to his experience in grocery with Natural Grocers,” said Jason Potter, the recently appointed president and CEO of The Fresh Market.
