Wegmans will soon be seeing a change in leadership, right at the very top.

Danny Wegman announced Wednesday that his daughter, Colleen Wegman, will take over a president and CEO of Wegmans Food Markets, Inc.  Danny, will take on the title of chairman.

“I will continue in my role, but now as chairman of the company,” said Danny Wegman.  “The time has come to create a structure for the future that will allow us to remain strong, vibrant and family-owned.  I have no doubt that our company will be in good hands.”

Colleen joined Wegmans back in 1991, and was named president in 2005.

The family run grocery chain celebrated its 100th anniversary last year.
