• Supervalu last week named Mickey Nye to be president of its Farm Fresh chain in Virginia. Nye is the former vice president of operations for Supervalu's Shoppers Food & Pharmacy chain, based in Baltimore.

Nye is the fourth president of the chain in four years. She replaces Bill Parker, who lasted less than a year after succeeding Gaelo de la Fuente, who held the job for less than three years after replacing Ron Dennis, who retired after more than a dozen years in the job.
