Bon-Ton delays naming CEO
May 31, 2004,
Bon-Ton Stores said its board will postpone naming a new CEO.
The board decided to postpone the move due to the recent medical leave of Bud Bergren, vice chairman. Bergren, whose leave was unexpected, was "a leading candidate under consideration," according to Tim Grumbacher, current CEO and chairman.
"The board feels it must delay the decision pending Bud's recovery," Grumbacher added. "In the meantime, I will continue in my active role as chairman and CEO, and our strong management team is committed to completing the Elder-Beerman integration and implementing the 2004 operating plan."
