PHILADELPHIA — Rite Aid announced on Monday that Steve Bixler, vice president of financial accounting, will become the new chief accounting officer effective Jan. 13, 2023, following the retirement of Brian Hoover who has served in the role for the last three years during his 27 years with Rite Aid.
Bixler will report to chief financial officer Matt Schroeder.
“We look forward to a seamless transition and the leadership Steve will bring as we continue our journey toward a modern full-service pharmacy company,” Schroeder said. “We are grateful for Brian’s many years of service and dedication to our company and wish him a well-deserved retirement.”
Bixler has served in accounting roles at Rite Aid for the last 21 years and was promoted to his current role as vice president in 2020. Steve joined Rite Aid as an inventory specialist immediately after earning his bachelor’s degree from Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pa., in 2001.
