Price Chopper Hires One, Promotes Two

The Golub Corp./Price Chopper Supermarkets has hired Steven Duffy as VP of Architectural Design and Purchasing Services, reporting directly to William Sweet, VP of engineering and construction. The company also promoted Benny Smith to the position of VP of facilities, also reporting directly Sweet, and Glen Bradley to the position of director of business intelligence, reporting directly to Peter Cobuzzi, VP of marketing.

In his newly created position, Duffy will oversee the design of new and remodeled stores and the purchase of equipment and fixtures for the Northeast regional chain. A registered architect, Duffy joins Price Chopper from Talbots, Inc, where he was director of store planning and design. Before that, he worked for Safeway and Toys R Us.

Smith will be responsible for warehouse, office and store maintenance as well as directing all internal energy programs for the chain. Before coming to Price Chopper, he worked as director of technical service and quality control for Beverage-Air in South Carolina. At the grocer, he has been director of maintenance and, most recently, director of facilities.

Bradley will be the contact for evaluation of category management-related technologies. He will also work to support the development and analysis of targeted marketing initiatives and some advertising and marketing programs for the company. Starting his career at Price Chopper in 1991 as a co-manager and store manager, Bradley has since held the positions of manager of continuous improvement, manager of category performance improvement and, most recently, manager of business intelligence.
