Kevin Weaver Joins Weis Markets as Director of Produce
SUNBURY, PA - Well-versed produce retail member Kevin Weaver has found a new home with Weis Markets, joining the company as its new Director of Produce.
Weaver previously worked for Jacksonville-based Southeastern Grocers as Director of Produce and Floral for more than five years, and has also worked in produce management at The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company.
His produce career goes back more than 25 years, kicking off in the early 1990s with Marsh Supermarkets, Inc., where he climbed the ranks from Produce Merchandising Specialist to Buyer, then Business Manager, then Vice President of Produce Merchandising.
In this latest position, Weaver will report directly to Bob Gleeson, Vice President, Fresh Merchandising. He will oversee the company’s day-to-day produce merchandising, pricing, and procurement, as well as the company’s produce field staff, according to a press release.
With a tenured background throughout several layers of the fresh produce buy-side, it will be exciting to see what this new chapter holds both for the company and for its latest Director.
Congratulations to Mr. Weaver and to the Weis team!
