Fareway Appoints New Executives and Vice Presidents
BOONE, IA - After 82 years in business, Fareway Stores has kept up with the times. It officially rebranded itself to symbolize a fresh perspective in 2018, and quickly followed that news with its own entrance into the meal kit sector. Although things have been semi-quiet on the Fareway-news front, the Iowa-based retailer returned to the newswire with a bang. The regional grocer recently announced the appointment of four new executives to its leadership team.
“We are excited for these individuals to advance and step into their new roles,” said Reynolds W. Cramer, President and CEO, in a recent press release. “We look forward to their continued contributions and dedication to Fareway.”
Among these additions are Garrett S. Piklapp, who was appointed to Executive Vice President, Secretary, and General Counsel; Pat Goldsmith, who will take on the role of Vice President of Facilities and Projects; John Cramer, who will assume the position of Vice President of Retail; and Clint Jenkins, who will become the Vice President of Wholesale Purchasing.
