Hy-Vee chairman, president and CEO Randy Edeker was elected chairman of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores at the trade organization’s annual meeting in Florida this week.
“Coming together as an industry to better understand consumers’ ever-evolving healthcare needs and how to respond to those changes is extremely important,” Edeker said. “I look forward to working with NACDS members and the board of directors to help guide the industry on key issues and policies.”
Edeker will serve a one-year term as chairman. He first joined the board in 2013, and in 2014, he served as treasurer. Edeker succeeded John Standley, chairman and CEO of Rite Aid Corp.
During his first address as chairman on April 27, Edeker announced that Hy-Vee will be contributing $100,000 to the NACDS Foundation to support research to advance public health.
