In his position, Crane will serve as finance business partner to Bennett Morgan, senior vice president and chief merchandising officer, while supporting the food distribution leadership team.
The company said Crane will lead budgeting, forecasting, monthly results analysis and risk and opportunity assessment activities. Additionally, he will provide financial guidance for strategic initiatives and day-to-day opportunities to boost efficiency and reduce company operating expenses.
“We’re excited to welcome Greg to our team,” said Jason Monaco, executive vice president and CFO at SpartanNash. “His experience leading high-performing teams and developing strategies to improve financial performance and growth will help us achieve our earnings targets and contribute to SpartanNash’s operational excellence.”
