Girard resigns as ShopKo vice chairman

Jeffrey Girard, ShopKo vice chairman, finance and administration, and a member of its board of directors, is resigning from the company, effective Aug. 1.

"I was happy to help two years ago by accepting an executive position with the company. However, I am confident that the administrative and financial staffs are well led and it is time for me to consider new business challenges, corporate boards and volunteer activities," he said.

Girard will continue on special assignment with the company through March 15, 2005, to assist with the transition of his responsibilities. Jack Eugster, non-executive chairman of the board of directors of ShopKo, said, "We are grateful to Jeff for his service as an officer of the company over the last two-and-a-half years and for his long service as a board member. We wish him the best, and thank Jeff for his many contributions to the company."

ShopKo president and CEO Sam Duncan said, "I want to add my thanks to Jeff as well. Under Jeff's direction, we have assembled a financial and administrative team that will continue to be a strong complement to our merchandising and operational teams. With Jeff's assistance in the transition, we do not foresee the need to name a new vice chairman."
