Schnucks Markets, Inc. is pleased to announce industry veteran Mark Doiron has joined the company as its new chief merchant. Doiron, who has more than 25 years of experience in the food and grocery industries, will be responsible for procurement and merchandising throughout Schnucks’ 99 supermarkets. He serves on the company’s senior management team and reports to the Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck.

“We are pleased to welcome Mark to our team,” Schnuck said. “He brings valuable and unique experiences to this leadership position, and we look forward to his contributions as we continue on our mission of nourishing the lives of our customers.”

“I am excited to join Schnucks,” Doiron said. “After getting to know the company, the St. Louis area, and seeing Schnucks’ Midwest locations, it was clear that this would be a great fit for both myself and my family.”

Before joining Schnucks, Doiron was president of Sure Winner Foods, a frozen food distribution company based in the northeastern United States. Prior to that, he was chief supply chain officer for Delhaize, a Belgium-based international food retailer, where he oversaw the company’s U.S. operations.

Doiron earned a bachelor of science in business administration from the University of Southern Maine. He and his family are moving to the St. Louis area from Scarborough, Maine. He replaces Steve Harper who retired earlier this year.
