Bob Gleeson Joins Weis Markets as Vice President Fresh Merchandising

On July 17, Weis Markets names Bob Gleeson, a former Shoppers Food & Pharmacy and Supervalu executive, the new Vice President of Fresh Merchandising.

Gleeson replaces John Grimes, who retired at the end of June. He will oversee the day-to-day merchandising and procurement of the company’s meat, produce, deli & food service, seafood and floral departments. 

“Bob Gleeson is a proven leader with extensive merchandising experience and a deep understanding of key parts of our seven-state market area,” said Richard Gunn, Weis Market’s SVP of Merchandising and Marketing. 

“We are also grateful to John Grimes for his many contributions during the past 11 years with our company and wish him well in the years ahead.”

Gleeson began his career with Shoppers in 1984 as a part-time grocery associate. During his 29-year career with Shoppers and Supervalu, Gleeson worked in increasingly senior leadership positions including vice president of center store, senior vice president of merchandising and division president.
