St. Louis-based Schnuck Markets Inc. has hired industry veteran Mark Doiron as its new chief merchant.
Doiron, who has more than 25 years of experience in the food and grocery industries, will be responsible for procurement and merchandising throughout Schnucks’ 99 supermarkets. He serves on the company’s senior management team and reports to the Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. Doiron succeeds Steve Harper, who retired earlier this year.
“We are pleased to welcome Mark to our team,” Schnuck said. “He brings valuable and unique experiences to this leadership position, and we look forward to his contributions as we continue on our mission of nourishing the lives of our customers.”
Before joining Schnucks, Doiron was president of Sure Winner Foods, a frozen-food distribution company based in the northeastern United States. Previously, he was chief supply chain officer for Belgian food retailer Delhaize’s U.S. operations.
“I am excited to join Schnucks,” Doiron said. “After getting to know the company, the St. Louis area, and seeing Schnucks’ Midwest locations, it was clear that this would be a great fit for both myself and my family.”
Founded in St. Louis in 1939, Schnuck Markets Inc. is a third-generation, family-owned grocery/pharmacy retailer with 99 stores in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa.
