Kroger Announces Keith Shoemaker as Dallas Division President; Valerie Jabbar Comments
DALLAS, TX - A recent promotion was announced at Kroger, as the retailer has named Keith Shoemaker as its new Dallas Division President. The news comes after the unexpected passing of Kroger’s former Dallas Division President, Adam Wampler, earlier this month.
Shoemaker has been promoted from his former role of Vice President of Operations at the Dallas Division, according to a report by The Dallas Morning News. He has served Kroger for over 44 years, 39 of which have been spent in the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, market.
Shoemaker is set to take charge of the 109-store Dallas Division immediately and will report directly to Valerie Jabbar, Senior Vice President of Retail Divisions, in his new role.
Over his tenure, Shoemaker held various roles before being named as Vice President of Operations at Fry’s in 2012. In 2015, he was promoted as Fry’s Vice President of Merchandising before officially joining the Dallas Division in 2017.
“We are confident Keith’s infectious dedication to the company’s promise to be friendly and caring and uplift every way is a true extension of Adam’s legacy that the division team will continue to benefit from under his leadership,” said Jabbar.
Congratulations on this appointment, Keith Shoemaker!
