SALISBURY — Food Lion’s parent company has announced more changes at the top.
Belgium-based Delhaize Group said Monday that Stéfan Descheemaeker will resign as CEO of Delhaize Europe effective Oct. 31. The company did not provide a reason for his resignation.
His departure follows the resignation of Roland Smith, CEO of Delhaize America. Smith resigned after Frans Muller was tapped as Delhaize Group CEO last month, a position Smith had wanted.
Muller in a statement Monday said the company is searching for a successor for Smith.
In the meantime, new Food Lion President Beth Newlands Campbell is reporting directly to the parent company in Brussels.
As a result of Descheemaeker’s resignation, Delhaize said Kostas Macheras, executive vice president and CEO of Delhaize’s Southeast Europe and Asia divisions, and Dirk Van den Berghe, CEO of Delhaize Belgium, will report directly to Muller effective Nov. 1.
“I look forward to working directly with both Kostas and Dirk to continue building on the positive momentum of our European businesses to generate further progress,” Muller said in a statement. “Equally I look forward to partnering with our Group CFO, Pierre Bouchut, so that we can continue improving the focus and performance of the overall group. This will be amongst my key priorities in addition to working directly with the Delhaize America team while I evaluate and search for the best candidate to fill the Delhaize America CEO role.”
