New VP of real estate at Family Dollar

MATTHEWS, N.C. — Family Dollar has named Brad Rogers as the company's SVP of real estate. Rogers replaces Keith Gehl, who announced his retirement from the company at the end of June. Rogers will report to chairman and CEO Howard R. Levine.

“For more than 53 years, our real estate strategy has been to open Family Dollar stores where our customers live and work,” said Levine. “Brad’s real estate experience and leadership will ensure that we continue to bring value and convenience to hundreds of new neighborhoods and thousands of new customers each year."

Rogers joined Family Dollar in 1998 as a real estate manager with responsibility for new store development in North and South Carolina. Between 2006 and 2011, he assumed greater roles with increased responsibilities, and in 2011, he was named VP of real estate. Rogers has a bachelor of arts from Millsaps College and earned a JD from Emory University.

“Throughout his 10-year career with Family Dollar, Keith Gehl has led our real estate efforts and had a significant impact on the strengthening and expansion of our real estate capabilities,” added Levine. “I sincerely appreciate the significant contributions he made during his career with Family Dollar and wish him all the best in his retirement.”

Family Dollar currently operates more than 7,800 stores in 45 states.
