Food City has appointed Dan Glei the company's VP of center store. Glei brings more than 25 years of industry experience to his new role.

"Dan has worked in the grocery and consumer packaged goods industry for a number of years, specializing in merchandising, private brands and most recently e-commerce," noted Steven C.

At Food City, he will oversee all center store operations; guide the category management staff, space management team and grocery supervisors; and coordinate the company's CPG partners.

"Food City has a customer-first focus throughout all levels of the organization, which makes it very clear on what our priorities are every day," said Glei, who plans to relocate to the Abingdon area with his family.
