Video: NGA now a ‘member-driven’ organization

Joe Sheridan, president and COO, Wakefern Food Corp., who is ending his two-year chairmanship at NGA, tells SN’s David Orgel and Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert that during his tenure and CEO Peter Larkin’s leadership — “a transformational period” — NGA “has become a member-driven and not a staff-driven organization. … We added 192 new members last year and that’s on top of 175 the year before, and with a 90% retention rate, we’re very, very proud.”
