Whole Foods’ incoming CEO is making big changes for the company

Five years after Amazon (AMZN) announced it would buy supermarket chain Whole Foods for $13.7 billion, a big new change just happened — on Sept. 1, new CEO Jason Buechel takes over for John Mackey.

“As co-founder of Whole Foods, I have often explained my relationship to the company in a parent-child metaphor,” Mackey wrote in a letter announcing his retirement to Whole Foods Staff in September 2021.[…] All parents come to a time when they have to let go and trust that the values ​​passed down will live on in their children.”
