MARSH SUPERMARKETS CFO ELBIN RESIGNS
ts here last week said John Elbin has resigned as chief financial officer and treasurer just one week after the company said it was considering putting itself up for sale. Elbin, who recently received a special $250,000 cash bonus following the refinancing the company's credit facility, was reported to have also been behind the company's plan to seek strategic alternatives.

Marsh named Douglas W. Dougherty senior vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer to succeed Elbin. Dougherty was the company's chief financial officer for more than 10 years until he retired in May 2005, when he was succeeded by Elbin.
