Nash Finch Elects New Director

Christopher Bodine has been elected to the board of directors at Nash Finch Co.

Bodine, 55, retired from CVS Caremark in January 2009 following a 24-year career with the company. Bodine served most recently as president of health-care services, for which he was responsible for strategy, business development, trade relations, sales and account management, pharmacy merchandising, marketing, information technology and Minute Clinic.

“Chris’ wealth of knowledge of the consumer retail sector and his focus on strategy and business development will be invaluable to the board in overseeing the company’s navigation of the changing marketplace,” said William Voss, Nash Finch chairman of the board.

Alec Covington, Nash Finch president and CEO, added: “The perspective and experience Chris brings to Nash Finch is a strong complement to the talent and expertise of our current board. His consumer retail focus will be quite helpful as we work to assist our customers in their efforts to enhance their competitive position.”

Nash Finch’s board of directors now includes eight members, seven of whom are independent.

Minneapolis-based distributor Nash Finch serves independent retailers and military commissaries in 36 states, the District of Columbia, Europe, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Azores and Egypt. The company also owns and operates a base of retail stores, primarily supermarkets under the Econofoods, Family Thrift Center, Avanza, Family Fresh Market and Sun Mart banners.
