Grocer Sobeys has announced a realignment that will see the creation of two business units, each led by a president of operations. The IGA operations business unit comprises the IGA and IGA Extra, Les Marchés Tradition, Marché Bonichoix and Rachelle-Béry banners in the province of Quebec, and will be led by Marc Poulin. The multi-format operations business unit will be run by Jason Potter. The unit includes the banners Sobeys, Thrifty Foods and Foodland.

Sobeys president and chief executive Bill McEwan said it had made the changes as a “pro-active accelerant of our strategy to optimise our performance in an increasingly competitive environment”.
