California Grocers Association (CGA) has elected Kevin Konkel, SVP store operations for Raley’s Family of Fine Stores, as the 2015-2016 chairman of the board of directors. He succeeds Joe Falvey of Unified Grocers, who becomes immediate past chair.
“Kevin is known in our industry not only as a stellar and experienced grocery executive, but also as a connector and facilitator,” said CGA President Ron Fong. “You are just as likely to find him meeting with a new industry start-up as you would running a strategy and marketing meeting with a roomful of industry veterans.”
The association, which represents more than 300 retail companies that operate 6,000 stores in California and Nevada, also elected the following individuals to the executive committee:
- First Vice Chair: Diana Godfrey, Smart & Final Stores
- Second Vice Chair: Jim Wallace, Albertsons Companies Inc.
- Treasurer: Bob Parriott, Twain Harte Market
- Secretary: Kendra Doyel, Ralphs Grocery Co.
