CAMP HILL, Pa. — The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has elected Rite Aid EVP human resources Brian Fiala to its board of governors, Rite Aid said Tuesday.
The organization, which raises money for 170 children's hospitals across North America, elected Fiala, who began at Rite Aid in 2007 as EVP store operations and was named EVP human resources in July, at its recent annual board meeting in Orlando, Fla.
"Rite Aid has been a tremendous partner to our hospitals for 17 years, and we know Brian is a great addition to our board of governors," Children's Miracle Network Hospitals CEO John Lauck said. "We're looking forward to his contributions and appreciate the commitment Brian has made to help grow Children's Miracle Network Hospitals."
Fiala's roles at the organization will include development and fundraising. Rite Aid has raised more than $50 million for the organization since becoming a sponsor in 1994.
"Since joining the Rite Aid team, I've been so impressed by the passion our associates have for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, not only during our annual paper Miracle Balloon campaign each spring, but throughout the year," Fiala said. "It's an honor to represent them on the board of governors, and I look forward to advancing the mission of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and helping the kids who need it the most."
