NOVI, Mich. — The Chain Drug Marketing Association’s (CDMA’s) board of directors announced last month the resignation of John Devine as its president. Devine, whose last day as president was June 22, stepped down to pursue other opportunities, according to CDMA.
Devine has served CDMA in a number of roles since he began in 2012, starting with vice president of store brands. In 2017, he became president when his father, James Devine, retired after serving as president for more than two decades.
Several of Devine’s duties will be passed on to CDMA’s new chief financial officer, Michael Boivin, who joined the company in May. Boivin has a track record of financial leadership. Boivin has more than 20 years of diversified financial, operational and strategic experience from start-ups to multimillion-dollar international companies across a variety of industries, according to CDMA.
Boivin began his career as a corporate controller at Little Caesars, followed by a position at SteriMed Medical Waste Solutions as corporate controller and operations manager. He then served as CFO at I.COMM and Vendtek Wholesale Equipment.
“I’m thrilled to be part of CDMA’s team,” Boivin remarked. “Joining an established leader in the industry like CDMA was an opportunity I could not pass up.”
CDMA markets the Quality Choice private label program and offers a variety of other programs and services for its retail and wholesale members.
