business news in context, analysis with attitude

• Reports out of Portland, Oregon, say that New Seasons Market COO Pat Brown has resigned from the company, and will become the CEO of Mrs. Green's Natural Markets, based in Westchester County in New York State.

Mrs. Green's has been going through considerable labor tumult and the former CEO, Robin Michel, recently stepped down after less than two years on the job.
KC's View:
at Brown is a very smart guy, coming out of HEB, and he's done great work at New Seasons. For the life of me I can't understand why anyone would leave Portland, Oregon, for Westchester County, but this is a very good move for Mrs. Green's.
