Keyes Named Meijer President

Meijer has appointed Rick Keyes as president. Keyes joined the company 26 years ago as a pharmacist in Columbus, OH, and takes the reigns from J.K. Symancyk, who is leaving the company to join Academy Sports.

Keyes was previously evp/supply chain and manufacturing for the company, a post he held since 2006.

“We are pleased to introduce Rick as our new president,” said Hank Meijer, co-chairman and co-CEO. “Rick’s proven leadership has been an inspiration to our team. He has grown up with Meijer, excelling in positions in both pharmacy and store operations, and, most recently, building industry-leading supply chain and manufacturing operations.”
