For the past eight years, the 80-year old privately held super market chain based in Lakeland, Fla. has been on a slow growth trajectory under CEO Ed Crenshaw, who semi-retired in May 2016 but will continue as chairman. He hands the reins of the world’s largest employee-owned company over to Todd C. Jones, a lifelong Publix associate and the first non-family member to lead the company. Jones inherits a retail brand that is as loved by generations of faithful shoppers as it is by its 180,000 employees, who are also co-owners via a very healthy stock ownership plan. Jones will also oversee Publix’s further expansion as it plans to open stores in Virgina in 2017.
