Reuters this morning reports that Ahold Delhaize has named Frans Muller as its new CEO, succeeding Dick Boer, who will retire on July 1. The story notes that “Muller had been CEO of Belgium’s Delhaize until Ahold acquired it in 2015 for 9.3 billion euros ($11.4 billion), after which he oversaw the integration of the companies’ U.S. businesses, which include the Stop & Shop, Giant, Hannaford and Food Lion supermarket chains.”
