Discount grocery chain Save A Lot has named interim CEO Fred Boehler to the role permanently. Boehler has been serving as interim CEO since Oct. 31, following the departure of former CEO Leon Bergmann.

Boehler brings more than 30 years of experience across multiple retail and wholesale businesses. He has worked in supply chain at SuperValu, Borders, Newell Rubbermaid and Americold Logistics., where he served as CEO and took the company public in January 2018. Boehler joined the Save A Lot board of directors in July 2021, and a search is now underway to fill Boehler’s vacated seat on the board.

“Fred’s deep expertise in the industry and his understanding of wholesale and logistics is particularly powerful for the Save A Lot brand following its shift to operating as a licensed wholesaler,” said Mike Motz, Chairman of the Save A Lot board in a statement. “He is known for developing innovative, customer-centric supply chain solutions and has demonstrated consistent leadership in delivering against a long-term vision and strategy. With his additional experience on the Save A Lot Board of Directors, Fred is well suited to lead the business as it is positioned today and to partner with its strong network of retail partners across the country.”

“I’m thrilled to join this talented team of executives and independent retailers who are deeply committed to serving customers with outstanding value and quality groceries,” said Boehler in a statement. “I believe the Save A Lot business model can uniquely deliver against the many challenges of today’s grocery industry.”
