Kroger is consolidating the Mariano’s and Roundy’s Wisconsin divisions into one division with a single leadership team.

Mariano’s president Don Rosanova will retire Sept. 29, and Roundy’s Wisconsin president Michael Marx will lead the newly combined division, according to a statement from Kroger.

The transition will take place over the next several months. Rosanova will assist with the transition until his departure.

“Mariano’s will continue to offer its Chicagoland customers a truly unique and leading-edge shopping experience combined with exceptional customer service,” Kroger said in the statement. “Roundy’s Wisconsin banners will continue to enhance their offerings with some of Mariano’s signature grocery merchandising to further enhance its customer’s shopping experience.”

Kroger made the change to “better meet the evolving needs of all its Wisconsin and Illinois customers” and as part of its Restock Kroger initiative, according to the company.

Rosanova has been with Roundy’s since 2002 and became president of Mariano’s in 2016.
