The grocery store chain Food Lion has a new president.

Beth Newlands Campbell is replacing Cathy Green Burns, who became a familiar face on Food Lion's television commercials.

The management change was announced late Thursday by Roland Smith, chief executive officer of Delhaize America, Food Lion's Belgium-based parent company.

Food Lion started in Salisbury, N.C., with a single store. It now has nearly 1,200 stores in 10 states.

Smith didn't announce a reason for removing Burns as president. Delhaize America said in a news release that it was restructuring to improve results.

In January, the company announced plans to close 113 underperforming Food Lion stores in the U.S.
