ST. LOUIS — The former president of Giant Food of Landover, Md., has joined Schnuck Markets as EVP and chief strategy officer, Schnucks said Thursday.
The St. Louis-based supermarket chain announced that it had hired Anthony Hucker, who resigned earlier this month as president of Giant-Landover, a chain owned by Ahold USA that runs 169 stores in the District of Columbia and surrounding areas. Formerly Walmart's corporate VP and head of the Walmart Express division, Hucker was named president of Giant-Landover two years ago this month.
"Anthony is a tremendous talent who shares our values; he's customer-focused and a true merchant in every sense," Schnucks chairman and CEO Scott Schnuck said. "We expect that he will add velocity to efforts that will ensure Schnucks' continued growth and success."
