LAKELAND, Fla. — Publix Super Markets here on Wednesday said it has promoted Gino DiGrazia to vice president of finance.
In addition to his current responsibilities for business analysis and reporting (BAR), DiGrazia will assume many of the responsibilities previously held by Kelly Underhill, director of tax and treasury, who retired from Publix on March 30 after 22 years with the employee-owned retailer.
Developing our leaders for future opportunities is important to our long-term success,” said David Phillips, chief financial officer. “I am pleased we have leaders like Gino who are prepared to take on new roles.”
DiGrazia joined Publix in 1992 as manager of BAR. In 1997, he was promoted to director of BAR and in 2002 was named vice president and controller, BAR. Prior to joining Publix, DiGrazia was an audit manager with Deloitte & Touche in Tampa, Fla.
