Schnuck Markets announces new executive addition to IT team

ST. LOUIS — Schnuck Markets announced that David Steck has joined the company as VP IT infrastructure, reporting to chief information officer Bob Hardester. Steck was previously senior director IT infrastructure, asset and spend management at Express Scripts.

"While pharmacy is familiar territory, grocery is a new industry, which makes this especially intriguing for me.”

“Schnucks is a progressive company whose leaders continue to place a high priority on technology in operations and as a means of communicating and connecting with customers. I see this as a unique opportunity for Dave to put his pharmacy and technology expertise to work in directly impacting and nourishing the lives of our customers," Hardester said.

In his new role, Steck will supervise an IT infrastructure team that oversees management of critical applications throughout data centers. Steck is enthusiastic about the chance to explore the analytics of the food-and-pharmacy company.

“While pharmacy is familiar territory, grocery is a new industry, which makes this especially intriguing for me,” he said. “It also plays to my strengths of working in a low-margin industry and exploring ways we can make life easier for our customers by improving the overall in-store and online experiences of shopping at Schnucks.”

Steck earned a bachelor's degree in computer information systems from Missouri State University. He resides with his wife, Kaye, in Ballwin, Mo.
