Despite a sudden change in PhoenixMart’s company leadership, Casa Grande city officials believe development of the sourcing center will continue on schedule.

Last week, PhoenixMart officials named Jeremy Schoenfelder as PhoenixMart president, replacing Steve Betts, who had served as the chief executive officer since June.

Casa Grande Mayor Bob Jackson said the change is not expected to cause any delays in the project.

In his three-month tenure as the project’s leader, Betts helped advance development of PhoenixMart, Jackson said.

As the project shifts focus from pre-construction to marketing showroom space in the 1.7 million-square-foot wholesale sourcing center, Jackson said he believes Schoenfelder’s expertise will be an asset.

“Jeremy has been involved since day one. He’s earned this position,” Jackson said.

Company executives are finishing up permitting and design of PhoenixMart, which is expected to be built on a 585- acre swath near Florence Boulevard and Toltec Buttes Road.

McCarthy Construction has been chosen to build the facility.

PhoenixMart plans are currently under review by city staff.
