business news in context, analysis with attitude

Wild Oats said yesterday that it would not renew CEO Perry Odak’s contract when it expires next March.

The company said in a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing that while negotiations had been proceeding for a contract extension, the two sides had not been able to come to a mutually satisfactory agreement, though the nature of the disagreement was not specified by either side.

Odak is the former president/CEO of Ben & Jerry’s who engineered the sale of that brand to Unilever.
