After eight years with the St. Mary's Food Bank in Phoenix, and more than three decades in the food service distribution industry, St. Mary's President and CEO Terry Shannon has announced his retirement, effective June 30.

Shannon will be leaving Arizona in the near future to relocate to southern Virginia and be closer to his children, who have recently left Arizona to pursue opportunities in their professional careers on the East Coast.

A national search for Shannon's replacement will begin immediately. Shannon intends to "on-board" his replacement for a seamless transition.
