SALISBURY — Fifteen longtime officers are leaving Food Lion and parent company Delhaize America in a leadership shake-up that started last month with the replacement of Food Lion President Cathy Green Burns.

A Delhaize America spokeswoman today confirmed the departures.


Nine of the 15 departing Delhaize officers work in Salisbury, including Tom Robinson, senior vice president of merchandising for Food Lion. Food Lion and Delhaize America are both headquartered in Salisbury.

New Delhaize America CEO Roland Smith started the shake-up in December when he tapped Beth Newlands Campbell, then president of Food Lion’s sister grocery chain Hannaford Supermarkets, to replace Green Burns, as well as making other leadership changes.

Spokeswoman Christy Phillips-Brown said she would not name the officers leaving the organizations out of respect for them.
