Tops Markets, LLC has hired Kevin Darrington as s.v.p. and c.f.o. In his new role, Darrington will direct, control, and coordinate all finance and information technology activities for Tops, supporting the grocer's continued growth and independence from its former owner, Ahold USA.

A CPA, Darrington most recently served as s.v.p. and chief accounting officer at Carteret, N.J.-based Pathmark Stores, Inc.
