SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) — The supermarket chain Weis Markets is looking for a new leader following the departure of chief executive David Hepfinger.
The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1h17ZCD ) that a federal filing indicates Hepfinger is getting at least $5 million under a separation agreement.
The paper says Hepfinger worked for Weis for five years, after 32 years with Price Chopper.
The interim president and CEO is Jonathan Weis, who's been a vice chairman and corporate secretary for the Sunbury-based company.
Weis operates 165 supermarkets.
The paper says he resigned effective Saturday, and the company said he was pursuing other interests. A message left at Hepfinger's home on Wednesday wasn't returned.
