Greg Corrigan Retires From Raley's
SACRAMENTO, CA - With nearly four decades, a time that Greg Corrigan has called a blessing, the Senior Director of Produce and Floral for Raley’s has announced his upcoming retirement. I first met Greg back in 2012 during my first years with the company, and he has always been a passionate source of knowledge and experience that has helped me understand the world of produce a little bit more.
“I have spent more than 35 years with the incredible team at Raley’s and 19 of those amazing years running the produce and floral department,” Greg shares with me. “The fresh produce industry and the people in it are a dynamic and passionate group that have helped pave the way for my personal growth and evolution. It has been a blessing to live within this industry, every day.”
Greg began his career in the grocery industry in 1984 working for Bel Air Market—before it was acquired by Raley’s—as he attended Sacramento State University where he achieved his Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration in 1991. Greg served as a Produce Manager at store level for nine years and, in 1998, Greg was promoted to District Produce and Floral Supervisor overseeing the store level operations for produce and floral in the South Division for Raley’s.
Greg was promoted to Director of Produce and Floral, in 2000, where his responsibilities included overseeing all procurement and merchandising for the four banner company including Raley’s, Bel Air Market, Nob Hill Foods and is retiring as the Senior Director of Produce and Floral for Raley’s Family of Fine Stores come July 20, after which, Michael Schutt will be the new lead for the team.
Greg has always had a contagious energy about him and I think that is what has made him such a leader—amongst many other amazing assets as well—in the retail space and beyond.
So, what is next for Greg? He plans on moving down to South Monterey with his amazing fiancée, Lisa Davis of Bonduelle Fresh Americas.
I would like to extend a warm congratulations from your friends at AndNowUKnow on your recent announcement and the exciting road ahead!
