retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• As expected, Hy-Vee's board of directors has elected Randy Edeker, the company's president/COO and a 30-year veteran of the company, to succeed the retiring Ric Jurgens as Chairman, CEO and President of Hy-Vee, Inc.

Edeker is only the fourth chairman/CEO in the company's history.

Jurgens, who is retiring after more than four decades with the company, had announced last December his intention to nominate Edeker to succeed him.
