Buehler’s names new EVP of sales and marketing

ferrisBuehler’s Fresh Foods, a leading supermarket chain in northeast Ohio, promoted Mike Davidson to the position of executive vice president of sales and marketing. In Davidson’s new role his responsibilities include oversight of all current sales and merchandising departments, marketing, customer insights, central kitchen and warehouse. He has been with Buehler’s since 2016 as the executive vice president of store operations. Previous to this Davidson worked for Price Chopper Supermarkets in several roles, including regional vice president and senior vice president of store operations.

Davidson will continue to report to Dan Shanahan, president and CEO, and continue in his capacity as an officer of Styx Holding. “Mike has had significant impact on our store operations and we expect in his new job that he will similarly move the needle in the development and execution of our sales, merchandising and marketing strategies,” said Shanahan.

Davidson resides in Wooster, OH, with his wife, Joanna.

The company was founded in 1929 by E.L. Buehler and his wife, Helen. In 1932 the family moved the business to Wooster, and, after four generations, grew to 13 stores serving the northeast Ohio market. In 2017, Buehler’s became an employee stock ownership program with the belief that selling to its own employees was the best way to assure the continuation of the innovative and creative spirit which made the chain a benchmark for independent grocers.
