Outgoing FMI exec awarded

BY Alaric DeArment

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The Food Marketing Institute gave an outgoing executive one of its top awards at a supermarket industry conference, the group said Monday.

FMI gave VP government relations Anne McGhee Curry its Glen P. Woodard, Jr. Award for her work in public affairs over the last three decades. Curry will retire from FMI at the end of this month.

"There is such divine justice to Anne’s receiving the Glen P. Woodard Award, as she walked side by side with Glen Woodard on Capitol Hill for two decades until his death in 1995," FMI president and CEO Leslie Sarasin said.

Curry has lobbied on behalf of the supermarket industry in Washington for 34 years, Sarasin said, working with members of Congress from both parties.

FMI gives top honor to former Hy-Vee CEO

BY Alaric DeArment

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The retired head of Midwestern supermarket chain Hy-Vee took home the top honor at a recent supermarket industry conference.

The Food Marketing Institute said Monday that it gave its most prestigious honor — the Sidney R. Rabb Award for excellence in serving the consumer, the community and the industry — to retired Hy-Vee chairman and CEO Ric Jurgens at the FMI Midwinter Executive Conference.

"On so many occasions, Ric shared with me his view that if we can make a difference in this life, we should," FMI president and CEO Leslie Sarasin said. "Ric believes strongly in making a difference, ever pushing us to think progressively, but in pragmatic ways that are respectful of the past and informed by his extensive industry experience. His dedication to FMI is immeasurable."

Sarasin also praised Jurgens’ work in promoting health and wellness at Hy-Vee. The chain has been a key player in the Iowa Healthiest State Initiative, a government-sponsored program to dramatically improve the health of state residents, and the chain has strongly promoted healthy eating through its stores.
