NACDS promotes finance executive
January 7th, 2013
ARLINGTON, Va. – The National Association of Chain Drug Stores has promoted David Fitzsimmons to senior vice president of finance and administration.
Previously NACDS’ vice president of finance and accounting, Fitzsimmons succeeds Jim Huber, who retired last month as executive vice president and chief financial officer after 25 years with the association.
A certified public accountant who has been with NACDS since 1996, Fitzsimmons has spent nearly three decades working in finance.
“With Dave at the helm, I am confident that NACDS’ financial position remains in good hands,” president and chief executive officer Steve Anderson says. “His expertise and 29-year career in finance make him an excellent choice to lead the association’s financial activities.”
In his new role Fitzsimmons is responsible for all of NACDS’ financial and fiduciary operations and policies, including affiliated entities, trusts and investments.
Fitzsimmons will also work with Anderson, the NACDS finance committee and the board of directors to prepare the association’s annual operating budget and will oversee NACDS’ technology-related activities.
Meanwhile, Anderson praised Huber for his contribution to NACDS over the years.
“As he embarks on his retirement, I thank Jim Huber for his unwavering dedication to NACDS for more than two decades,” he said. “In planning for a seamless transition and in ensuring successful completion of a host of projects, Jim has provided an excellent example of what it means to finish strong, and now we wish him all the best — we are quite sure he will remain active in many ways.”
