business news in context, analysis with attitude

Southeastern Grocers, parent company to Winn-Dixie and Bi-Lo, yesterday named Anthony Hucker as its president/CEO. Hucker has been serving in the roles on an interim basis since late June, when Ian McLeod stepped down after less than two-and-a-half years in the job.

Hucker is a former president/COO of Schnucks, as well as being a former senior executive at Ahold-owned Giant and Walmart.

Meanwhile, the Houston Chronicle reports that Houston-based Fiesta Mart has named Sid Keswani as its new CEO, succeeding Mike Byars.

According to the story, Keswani formerly served as COO of Aspen Heights, a real estate development company, and before that was senior vice president of operations for Susser Holdings; he also was an executive at Target for 19 years.
