05/16/2012

Publix Super Markets Inc. has promoted Gino DiGrazia to the position of VP of finance. In addition to his current business analysis and reporting (BAR) responsibilities, DiGrazia is taking on many of the duties formerly performed by Kelly Underhill, director of tax and treasury, who retired from Publix in March 2012 after 22 years with the Lakeland, Fla.-based grocer.

Developing our leaders for future opportunities is important to our long-term success,” noted Publix CFO David Phillips.

DiGrazia, who is a CPA, joined Publix in 1992 as manager of BAR. In 1997, he rose to the position of director of BAR and in 2002 became VP and controller, BAR. Before coming to Publix, DiGrazia was an audit manager with Deloitte & Touche in Tampa, Fla.

Privately owned and operated by its 151,500 employees, Publix has 1,051 stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee.
