ZAANDAM, THE NETHERLANDS - When it comes to strong leadership teams, Ahold Delhaize knows a thing or two. Seeking to continue its recent success under a distinguished exec, the retailer’s Supervisory Board has announced plans to reappoint Frans Muller as President and Chief Executive Officer.
“I am grateful for the nomination and would be honored to continue to lead Ahold Delhaize, together with the Executive Committee colleagues, our great local brands and caring associates, making sure we support our communities and deliver on our purpose of helping our customers eat well, save time, and live better,” Muller commented on his reappointment.
