Peninsula Co-op selects new CEO

Peninsula Co-op announced last month they had selected Dave Hoy as new CEO and General Manager. Hoy says he is looking forward to taking on the new position

“I am very excited for the opportunity to join and grow the Peninsula Co-op and to relocate to Victoria,” said Hoy. “The Peninsula Co-op has such a successful history and I’m looking forward to adding to that with my experience.”

Hoy will begin his position with the Co-op on March 4 of this year, after a long background of working in the co-operative retailing system.

His Co-op career started in March 1977 at the Prince Albert, Saskatchewan Co-op as a food clerk.

A progression of increasingly responsible roles led Hoy to assume new roles like Branch Manager at Prince Albert and Prairie Co-ops and also General Manager at Young and East Central Co-op (all in Saskatchewan.)

Hoy also worked as a retail advisor at Federated Co-operatives Limited in Saskatoon from 1991 to 1996.

He currently holds the retail advisor position, in addition to his current role as Manager at the Mid-Island Co-op — a role he has held for the last 12 years.

Hoy has also worked closely over the years on a number of projects with the Peninsula Co-op board and management team.

“Compliments to the Peninsula Co-op on the successes they’ve had,” said Hoy.

“I’m looking forward to adding to that and I feel bringing the experience I’ve got will only add to Peninsula Co-op’s success in the future.

Erik Gault, operations manager and interim CEO and general manager of Peninsula Co-op said the board is looking forward to Hoy’s arrival.

“I’ve known Dave for as long as he’s been at Mid-Island Co-op and I know he’s done some fantastic things to grow that area,” said Gault.

“We’re all really excited for him to join the team. It’s going to be the beginning of a new chapter.”
