MATTHEWS, N.C.-Brad Rogers has been named senior vice president of real estate for Family Dollar.
The move puts Rogers in charge of the dollar-store retailer’s real-estate strategy, which has been to expand the chain so that a Family Dollar is close to where its shoppers live and work. He reports directly to Howard Levine, chairman and CEO, and is succeeding Keith Gehl, who will retire from Family Dollar at the end of this month.
Rogers joined Family Dollar in 1998 as a real-estate manager, responsible for new-store development in North and South Carolina. From 2006 to 2011, he assumed roles in which his responsibilities increased. In 2011, he was named vice president of real state.
