NOVI, Mich. — The Chain Drug Marketing Association’s (CDMA) board of directors announced today that John Devine is stepping down from his position as president to pursue other opportunities. 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 after his father, James Devine, retired after serving as president for more than two decades. His last day with the company will be June 22.
Several of Devine’s duties will be passed on to CDMA’s new chief financial officer, Michael Boivin, who joined the company in May. Although new to the drug store industry, Boivin has a proven track record of financial leadership, having served in a number of companies in a variety of industries.
CDMA markets the Quality Choice private label program and offers a variety of other programs and services for its retail and wholesale members.
