Meijer Announces Executive Changes
Oct 2 15
Meijer announced the appointment of Rick Keyes as president of the Grand Rapids. Keyes, who joined the company 26 years ago as a pharmacist in Columbus, Ohio, takes the reigns of the multi-state Midwestern retailer after this week's announcement that J.K. Symancyk is leaving the company to join a retailer. Keyes had been executive vice president of supply chain and manufacturing since 2006. In that capacity he oversaw the retailer's expansion into manufacturing with the acquisition of one dairy and construction of another, and pioneered initiatives ranging from the launch of a near-zero emission truck fleet to significant investments in lean distribution technologies.
