Publix promotes DiGrazia to VP finance

LAKELAND, Fla. — Gino DiGrazia, who currently serves as VP and controller of Publix's business analysis and reporting, has been promoted to VP finance. In addition to his current responsibilities for business analysis and reporting, DiGrazia assumes many of the responsibilities previously held by Kelly Underhill, director of tax and treasury, who retired from Publix on March 30.

"Developing our leaders for future opportunities is important to our long-term success," Publix CFO David Phillips said. "I am pleased we have leaders like Gino who are prepared to take on new roles."

DiGrazia joined Publix in 1992 as manager of business analysis and reporting. In 1997, he was promoted to director of business analysis and reporting until being named VP and controller of business analysis and reporting in 2002.
