Guion to Retire from Dollar General
July 26, 2011,
GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn.-Kathleen Guion, division president of store operations and store development for Dollar General, will retire from the company effective July 31, 2012.
An eight-year veteran of the discount retailer, Guion took her current post in November 2005. She oversaw Dollar General's more than 9,500 stores in 35 states, and a company statement credited her with revamping the retailer's real-estate strategy. Rick Dreiling, chairman and CEO, said Guion "has provided effective and innovative leadership of store operations and store development during a period of tremendous growth for Dollar General."
