GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn.-Dollar General has named Todd Vasos chief operating officer, with responsibility over store operations, merchandising and supply chain.

The retailer has also appointed David D'Arezzo executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, succeeding Vasos in both of those posts. D'Arezzo thus assumes charge over the retailer's merchandising operations. Vasos reports to Rick Dreiling, chairman and CEO, and D'Arezzo reports to Vasos.

The two moves are part of a Dollar General effort to align the organization across store operations, merchandising and supply chain. Dreiling said, "As the company has nearly doubled its sales since 2007, this new reporting structure will allow us to continue to capture growth opportunities ahead of us and effectively leverage our infrastructure, while allowing me to focus more of my attention on overall strategy and long-term growth."

Vasos joined Dollar General in 2008. Prior to that, he was executive vice president and chief operating officer at Longs Drugs, and served in executive posts with Eckerd Drug and Phar-Mor Food and Drug.

D'Arezzo comes to Dollar General after serving as executive vice president and chief operating officer for Grocers Supply. Before that, he was senior vice president and chief merchandising officer for Duane Reade.
