Hucker Joins Schnucks as EVP, Chief Strategy Officer


Anthony T. Hucker, most recently president of Ahold’s Landover, Md.-based Giant Food division, has joined St. Louis-based Schnuck Markets, Inc. as EVP and chief strategy officer.

Hucker will join the regional retailer, which operates 100 stores and 95 in-store pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa, on Sept. 30.

“Anthony is a tremendous talent who shares our values – he’s customer-focused and a true merchant in every sense,” said Scott Schnuck, chairman and CEO. “We expect that he will add velocity to efforts that will ensure Schnucks’ continued growth and success.”

Building on a 30-year career in the retail industry, Hucker, who also previously served as a member of Ahold USA’s executive board, oversaw the operation of Giant’s 169 Washington, D.C. and Baltimore supermarkets.

Prior to joining Giant, Hucker spent seven years at Wal-Mart in a variety of leadership positions. During his tenure as corporate VP, he pioneered and activated the Wal-Mart Express concept. Hucker began his career in the European retail industry as a food industry analyst. He then worked for 10 years with Aldi, where he served in a variety of leadership assignments in Germany, Austria and the U.S. as well as part of the original start-up team for Aldi UK.
