Dennis Bassler – President, Southern Division

Dennis Bassler has been in the grocery business since 1976 when he started working at Fazios in California.

Following that company’s acquisition by Albertson’s Inc., Bassler took on roles of increasing responsibility, and served as a Store Director for nine years.

He was promoted to Director of Operations and Marketing in both the Colorado and Texas divisions for the company’s former Grocery Warehouse & Max Store banners before returning to Southern California as a district manager.

During his 16 years in the Southern California Division, he held numerous leadership positions, and left the company in 2010 when he was Area Vice President of the Central Coast district.

Soon after, Bassler accepted a position with Albertsons LLC’s Southern Division as a District Manager for the Company’s North Dallas district before being tapped to be the President of Albertsons LLC’s new Northwest Division office in March 2013.

Bassler was appointed Southern Division President in January 2016.
