Don Heinerichs, VP App Services
Don Heinerichs started his career right out of college with The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company / Super Fresh as a Junior Accountant at their regional office. Don quickly excelled and was offered an opportunity to manage the MIS (IT) and Business Support functions for the Mid-Atlantic and South Central divisions of A&P/Superfresh. There was a need for a Stores Accounting manager so Don returned to accounting where he stayed for several years later. In order to better understand the grocery industry Don accepted a Warehouse Loss Prevention/Shrink Manager position and assisted in the integration of a warehouse management system. With the new WMS system Don became the Shrink/System Process manager and assisted in the control of store/warehouse shrink. When C&S bought the A&P/Superfresh warehouse Don was promoted to a Regional Inventory Control/Shrink Manager for their 4 warehouses in Maryland. During his long tenure Don worked on financial statements, business plans, shrink reduction, and process integration. With his 25 plus years in the grocery industry and having worked in almost every functional area from the store through the warehouse and accounting to IT, FMS was a perfect fit. “FMS has given me the opportunity to spread my wings and assist retailers in every aspect of the grocery industry form inventory to back office accounting through understanding and integration”. During Don’s tenure he has assisted in many projects to help retailers succeed. Don prides himself on listening to the needs of clients and reacting to those needs. “I am happy to be a part of the FMS revolution and cannot wait to see what the future holds for the retail industry”.
