Aurora Grocery Group Announces Leadership Transition

“After 12 years as the Chairman of Aurora Grocery Group, I’m very proud to pass the baton to our new Chairman, my brother, Franky Jorge. From the founding of AGG, I told my family members that I did not see the position of Chairman as a permanent position but as one that would be passed through different family members so that all of us could bring our energy, talents, and new ideas for the benefit of all our stores,” said Omar Jorge.

“I’m very excited about the growth that we will see under Franky’s leadership and look forward to continuing to serve on the Board of Directors and as an AGG member,” Jorge added.
