business news in context, analysis with attitude

The National Grocers Association (NGA) announced yesterday that Mike Jackson, the former Supervalu senior executive who had agreed to succeed the retiring Tom Zaucha as the trade association’s president/CEO, has changed his mind “for personal reasons and will not take the job and move to Washington, DC.

According to NGA, the search committee that recruited Jackson will now move onto the other “very qualified professionals” who were candidates for the job. Zaucha is not scheduled to step down until June, and so the committee is said to have plenty of time to accomplish its work.
