ShopRite Supermarkets, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wakefern Food Corp., with 34 stores in New York and New Jersey, has appointed retail veteran Brett Wing as president. He replaces Dave Figurelli, who retired earlier this month after 15 years with the company.
Wing joined ShopRite in 2015 as executive vice president after serving as vice president of Food Maxx, a division of California-based Save Mart Supermarkets. Prior to that, he worked for 25 years at Cub Foods.
"Brett is uniquely qualified to take the reins at SRS and move the company forward in a challenging and competitive environment," Joe Colalillo, chairman and chief executive officer of Wakefern Food Corp., said in a statement. "He has spent his career in the supermarket business and brings to SRS a broad and deep knowledge of the industry."
Wakefern is one of the largest retailer-owned supermarket cooperatives in the country, with its members operating hundreds of stores under the ShopRite, Fresh Grocer, Price Rite and Dearborn Market banners.
