AUSTIN, Texas - Whole Foods Market, Inc. has named company veteran Mark Dixon president of its Southwest Region.
Dixon's promotion follows the retailer's announcement last week that it was expanding its operating regions from eight to 10 by separating the Southwest Region into the Southwest and Rocky Mountain regions, and the Northern Pacific Region into the Northern California and Pacific Northwest regions.
"A clear and confident vision of the road ahead; an infectious, enthusiastic and respectful style of leadership; a demonstrated willingness to constantly grow and change; and an unwavering dedication to Whole Foods Markets for over 20 years make Mark a great choice to lead the new Southwest Region," said Walter Robb, co-president of Whole Foods.
Dixon joined the company in 1984 and has held various positions including team leader, associate store team leader, store team leader, metro store team leader, and, most recently, regional v.p. of the former Southwest Region since July 2002.
