Dollar Tree Inc. operated 16,622 stores across 48 states and five Canadian provinces as of Oct. 28, 2023.
Dollar Tree Inc. is giving its COO expanded oversight.
Mike Creedon, a former senior executive at Advance Auto Parts who joined the discounter as COO in September 2022, will now also oversee merchandising and supply chain at Dollar Tree and Family Dollar. As a result of the alignment, Dollar Tree chief merchandising officer Rick McNeely, as well as Family Dollar chief merchandising officer Larry Gatta and chief supply chain officer Mike Kindy, will report to Creedon.
"As we’ve worked together over the last year to build our transformation strategy, Mike has served as a key leader driving our operational path forward," said Dollar Tree chairman and CEO Rick Dreiling. "In this expanded role, Mike will have full end-to-end accountability for delivering a best-in-class store experience for our customers. As I shared with our associates, while Mike and I will continue to work closely together, I am committed to leading this company and I remain fully engaged in all areas of the business."
Before joining Dollar Tree in 2022, Michael Creedon Jr. held several leadership roles at Advance Auto Parts for almost nine years, most recently as executive VP and president of U.S. Stores. He also previously held executive positions with Tyco International and ADT Security. Creedon earned his bachelor’s degree from Middlebury College and a Finance certificate from the Chicago Graduate School of Business.
“The organization is at an important inflection point as it executes its transformation plan,” said Dollar Tree lead independent director Edward J. Kelly. “With Mike in this expanded role, working closely with Rick at the helm, we bring together key elements of that strategy that will have a significant positive impact on the company.”
