Following the completion of its merger with Family Dollar Stores earlier this month, Dollar Tree has named Michael Witynski COO of the Chesapeake, Va.-based discounter. He will report to CEO Bob Sasser.
In his new role, Witynski will lead store operations and real estate for Dollar Tree bannered stores in the U.S., and all retail operations and real estate in Canada.
Witynski has served as SVP of stores since joining Dollar Tree in 2010. He previously served in executive positions at Shaw's Supermarkets and Supervalu Inc.
Lauding Witynski as an "accomplished retailer," Sasser noted that he has been a "key leader in Dollar Tree’s continued growth and operating performance since joining the company in 2010."
"This leadership appointment is a component of our ongoing integration following our Family Dollar acquisition," Sasser said.
Dollar Tree operates more than 13,600 stores across 48 states and five Canadian provinces.
