Supervalu introduces new executive team

Eden Prairie-based grocery giant Supervalu unveiled a new executive team Friday, including a new chief information officer, the Pioneer Press reports.

Former OfficeMax and Advance Micro Devices CIO Randy Burdick will be Supervalu’s new CIO, replacing Kathy Persian, who is exiting the company. Burdick starts Monday.

The company also said that Michele Murphy will be Supervalu’s executive vice president, human resources and corporate communications, replacing Dave Pylipow, who is leaving the company next month.

Also exiting the company is J. Andrew Herring, who served as executive vice president for real estate, market development and legal.

According to Supervalu’s new CEO Sam Duncan, Janel Haugarth will remain as executive vice president and president of independent business and supply-chains services.

Word of the new executive team comes a day after a 12 percent jump in shares, following its sale of five of its supermarket chains: Albertsons, Acme, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s and Star Market.
