Ahold Delhaize CEO To Retire In July

Ahold Delhaize CEO Dick Boer will retire July 1, 2018, with Deputy CEO and Chief Integration Officer Frans Muller taking his position. Boer will assist Muller with the transition and remain with the company as an advisor through mid-2019.

Muller previously led Delhaize America on an interim basis between October 2016 and January 2018. He spearheaded the integration process between Ahold and Delhaize Group in collaboration with the grocery retailer’s local brands and support offices.

“Frans brings a wealth of retail experience and a deep knowledge of our company, brands and U.S. and European markets, making him the natural choice as the next CEO,” said Mats Jansson, Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Ahold Delhaize. “Frans is committed to the brand-centric operating model which is key to our strategy and has the customer at its core. We are confident that Frans is the right person to lead the company into its next phase.”
