Q&A: Bi-Lo Holdings CEO Randall Onstead on the importance of adaptability

The son of a grocery store owner, Randall Onstead, CEO of Bi-Lo Holdings, was raised in the business. Almost 50 years ago, in 1966, his father started a grocery chain in Texas of his namesake - Randalls, where he worked when he was 10 years old. From there, it was a series of upward progressions. He went on to grow his career at Randalls Food Markets Inc., parent company of both Randalls and Tom Thumb supermarket chains in Texas, eventually rising to lead the company as chairman, president and CEO. Between 1997 and 1999, Onstead increased the business value from $645 million to $1.85 billion.
In 1999, Randalls Food Markets, Inc., was sold to Safeway, and he moved on to serve as president and CEO of Texas-based crafts and decor retailer Garden Ridge Corp., and then as president of Dominick's Finer Foods, a division of Safeway, Onstead tells us. (read more...)
