May 17, 2016 – Executive search firm Reffett Associates has placed Marc Jones as chief operating officer of HAC, Inc., parent of Homeland Grocery Stores. This is a new position within the organization.
The search was conducted by Reffett Associates team members Angel Rodriguez, managing director of the firm’s Dallas office, and Marshall Reffett, managing director in its Seattle office.
