Haggen CEO to Retire

Dale C. Henley, president and CEO of Bellingham, Wash.-based independent Haggen, Inc., plans to retire from the company by June 2010 or earlier if a replacement is found beforehand.

According to published reports, following his retirement, Henley will become nonexecutive chairman of the board at Haggen and continue as president and CEO of a Haggen affiliate, real estate development firm Briar Development Co.

Henley has been the CEO of Haggen since 1996 -- the first non-family member to assume that role -- and during his tenure at the company added 17 stores in Washington and Oregon. He joined as VP of finance in 1984 and was promoted to CFO five years later. He became the company’s first non-family member to be appointed president and CEO in 1996.

Haggen operates 33 supermarkets under the Haggen Food & Pharmacy and TOP Food & Drug banners.
