The parent company of Marsh Supermarkets has picked a new CEO to lead the locally based grocery chain.

Thomas R. O'Boyle Jr., an executive vice president for the New Jersey-based supermarket chain A&P, will serve as chairman and CEO of Marsh, the company said in a statement Thursday.

O'Boyle Jr. joined A&P in 2010, shortly before the century-old retailer filed for bankruptcy reorganization. The chain emerged from bankruptcy as a private company in March.

O'Boyle Jr. led A&P's merchandising, marketing and supply chain. Previously, he served as senior vice president of food, drug and pharmacy for Sears Holdings and as a senior vice president for the grocery chain Albertsons.

"I am honored by this opportunity to lead Marsh, a company that is clearly on the right path toward providing customers with the best grocery shopping experience possible," he said in a statement.

Marsh Chief Operating Officer Bill Holsworth had been serving as interim CEO since former CEO Joe Kelley abruptly resigned in May.

Kelley, a veteran of New York-based Price Chopper Supermarkets who took the helm at Marsh in May 2011, left to become president of the New England division of Stop & Shop, a 375-store grocery chain owned by Dutch food giant Ahold.

The departure left the Fishers-based chain, a subsidiary of the Florida-based private equity firm Sun Capital Partners, to a search for its third chief executive in a little more than a year. Kelley replaced Frank Lazaran, who left Marsh in April 2011 after a five-year stint as CEO.

Marsh operates 64 Marsh stores, 3 O'Malia's Supermarkets and 26 MainStreet Markets in Indiana and Ohio.

  1. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

  2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

  3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

  4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

  5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
