Tom Shurrie, president and CEO of the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG), is set to retire from the role at the end of this year.

Once a replacement has been selected, Shurrie – who had originally planned to step down at the end of March – will move into an advisor role until the end of 2024.

CFIG chair Jamie Nelson said in a letter released today (April 15) that Shurrie will be attending GSF West and several other events virtually this year. 

“On behalf of the CFIG board and all our members (retail, affiliate and associate), I would like to thank Tom for all his years of leadership, professionalism, and dedication to advance the cause of independent grocers and our grocery industry throughout his unique career as a retailer, supplier, industry leader and president and CEO of CFIG,” Nelson said.
