MAIDENCREEK TWP., Pa. - The Redner family is passing the torch of its company's leadership from one generation to the next.

The Berks County-based Redner's Markets announced Monday the appointment of Ryan Redner as the company's president and CEO, effective immediately. He succeeds his father, Richard Redner.

"I felt it was time for the next generation to begin to take over," said Richard Redner. "I and the board have full confidence in Ryan's ability to provide leadership for our company as we take the next steps into building a strong, third generation of family in leadership positions."

Ryan Redner joined the company in 1995 and filled a variety of roles within its stores and warehouses while attending college. Upon his graduation in 1999, he was appointed the director of direct store delivery operations, promoted to the board of directors in 2004 and named chief operating officer in 2007.

Richard Redner will continue his role as chairman of the board. He'll also assume the title of senior vice president of strategic planning, actively working with the executive staff on key business elements while serving in a consultative role to the CEO.

Redner's Markets, founded by Earl and Mary Redner in 1970, is an employee-owned company that currently operates 44 grocery stores and 21 convenience stores in eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.

Earl Redner died last month at the age of 91. He continued to play an active role in the company long after he retired in 1990.

"From a grandson to a grandfather, I'll miss all of the talks that we had," Ryan Redner told 69 News last month.
