The general manager of the Niskayuna Co-Op is stepping down after two-and-a-half years on the job and being replaced by the longtime assistant general manager.
The Co-Op’s board of directors said Wednesday that Jennifer Felitte submitted a letter of resignation that cited personal reasons for her departure.
The former operations manager at Honest Weight Food Co-op in Albany began running the Niskayuna supermarket in October 2014, several months after the departure of general manager Don Bisgrove, who worked 38 years at the Niskayuna Co-Op.
Between Bisgrove’s departure and Felitte’s hiring, Bisgrove’s former assistant, 20-year employee Richard “Rit” Gabree, served as acting general manager. Gabree continued as assistant general manager for Felitte, and he will take over as general manager on April 8, the Co-Op board announced in a statement Wednesday.
