After merger, Albertsons and Safeway announce new Boise executive

The recently merged Albertsons and Safeway retail chains announced Brad Street is now the president of the company’s Intermountain Division. Street replaces Susan Morris, who recently was appointed president of the company’s Denver Division.

In his new role, Street will oversee 85 stores in eight states.

Street began his career with Albertsons in Salt Lake City in 1983. He previously held a Boise-based leadership role for Albertsons. Most recently, he was vice president of operations for Jewel-Osco, which is now part of the Albertsons organization.

“I am very excited that Brad is returning to Boise to lead our successful Intermountain team,” said Kelly Griffith, executive vice president and chief operation officer for the company’s North Region.

The now-merged company, which is privately owned by a group of investors led by Cerberus Capital Management, is one of the world’s largest food and drug retailers. It has more than 2,200 stores in 34 states and the District of Columbia including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, ACME Markets, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United, Pavilions, Star Markets, Market Street, Amigos and Carrs.
