June 14, 2013 by James
Family Dollar Stores of Matthews recently announced that it will be replacing Keith Gehl, its Senior Vice President for Real Estate who is retiring at the end of June, with Brad Rogers, who will be reporting to the Chairman and CEO, Howard R. Levine. No doubt there will be alterations made to business card printing arrangements as Rogers settles into his new role.
According to Levine, the strategy of Family Dollar with regard to real estate has been to open stores where its customers work and live, and Rogers’ experience in real estate will ensure that the company continues to find those properties that can best serve the hundreds of new neighborhoods and their thousands of customers in the future.
Rogers began his career in 1998 at Family Dollar as a manager for real estate and was responsible for the development of new stores in North and South Carolina. He assumed roles with responsibilities that increased between 2006 and 2011, at which point he became Vice President for Real Estate. His Bachelor of Arts degree is from Millsaps College and his Juris Doctor is from Emory University.
Levine stated that Gehl had a very successful 10-year career with Family Dollar during which time his leadership in the company’s real estate efforts were able to have a great impact that strengthened and expanded the real estate capabilities of the company. He made significant contributions to Family Dollar and Levine wished him well for his retirement years
