John Mackey: Whole Foods Bio?

The chief executive of Whole Foods is giving up his title of chairman, following years of petitioning by an activist shareholder to separate the two roles. I'd like to read his bio.

John Mackey is voluntarily giving up his chairmanship, a position he's held since the Austin, Texas, company's inception in 1978. Why is John Mackey quiting? Where can I read John Mackey's bio?
