PORTLAND, Ore. — New Seasons Market here said it has named Pat Brown, a veteran of H-E-B's Central Market chain in Texas, as its new chief operating officer.
The post had been vacant since Lisa Sedlar was named chief executive officer in December. Brown will oversee day-to-day operations at the 10-store New Seasons chain, which is scheduled to open its 11th location this fall.
