Dollar Tree Inc said Tuesday that Chief Executive Richard Dreiling will replace Chief Executive Mike Witynski, nearly a year after agreeing to renew its board in a deal with activist investor Mantle Ridge.

Witynski was named CEO in July 2020 to succeed Gary Philbin, who retired after serving in the role for nearly three years.

Dreiling, 69, who previously served as chairman and CEO of rival Dollar General, was appointed to Dollar Tree’s board of directors as part of the deal in March 2022. He will take over as CEO of the company at starting January 29.

In late 2021, Mantle Ridge led a review of Dollar Tree and Dreiling’s business strategy as the senior head at the discount retailer along with a review of its board of directors.

In November of last year, the company lowered its full-year earnings forecast for the second time as price cuts to lure buyers fearful of inflation put pressure on its margins.

As part of the deal with Mantle, Dollar Tree announced in June the departure of chief financial officer Kevin Wampler and some other top executives.
