Busch’s Fresh Food Market has named Mike Brooks president and CEO, replacing John Busch who takes on the role of chairman.
Bringing more than 25 years' experience to his new role, Brooks will be responsible for oversight for the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based grocer.
Prior to joining Busch’s, Brooks served as president and COO for iControl, a Burtonsville, Md.-based SaaS technology company. He has also held executive positions at Delhaize America and Supervalu.
“In the Board of Directors’ consideration for Busch’s next president and CEO, it was Mike’s extensive experience and keen understanding of the retail grocery industry that made him the standout candidate for the position,” said Busch. “To ensure a seamless transition, we knew we needed a dynamic team builder and solid visionary leader and we are confident that we have found that in Mike.”
Busch, who has led the company for the past 31 years, joined the company in 1983 after his father, Joe, retired. Under Busch’s leadership, the family-owned and operated grocery store expanded from two locations to 15 throughout Southeast Michigan.
