Ahold supervisory board member announces resignation


Royal Ahold supervisory board member Tom de Swaan has announced plans to resign.

Netherlands-based Ahold, the parent company of Ahold USA and U.S. supermarket banners Stop & Shop, Giant Food of Landover, Md., and Giant Food Stores of Carlisle, Pa., as well as the online grocer Peapod, said de Swaan would resign effective Sept. 30.

De Swaan's resignation is a result of his Sept. 11 appointment as chairman of Zurich Insurance Group. He was appointed to Ahold's supervisory board in 2007 and served as chairman of the audit committee, a role that fellow board member Stephanie Shern will fill following his departure.
