Wakefern veteran named Inserra Supermarkets SVP

Mahwah-based Inserra Supermarkets on Friday announced that Jim Dorey has been named senior vice president, effective immediately.

Dorey will eventually transition to the position of president and chief operating officer, a role currently filled by Ron Onorato, who has announced his intention to retire within the next two years.

Inserra operates 22 ShopRite stores and two Price Rite Marketplaces in New Jersey and New York.

Dorey joins the Inserra organization from Price Rite Marketplace, a registered trademark of Wakefern, the retailer-owned cooperative he first joined in 2004. Kevin McDonnell, currently senior vice president of operations for Price Rite Marketplace, will lead the Price Rite team.

“We welcome Jim to our team at Inserra Supermarkets,” said Lawrence Inserra Jr., chairman and CEO, Inserra Supermarkets. “His valuable experience with Wakefern Food Corp. makes him a great choice to lead us into the future. We congratulate Ron on his planned retirement and are grateful for all the contributions he has made to Inserra Supermarkets over the years. He will work closely with Jim in making this transition in leadership.”
