    GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, February 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SpartanNash Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer David M. Staples has been recognized for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in mergers and acquisitions.

Mr. Staples has nearly three decades of experience in business finance and mergers, with 14 years as executive vice president and chief financial officer of SpartanNash. His expertise lies in the areas of finance, mergers and acquisitions. SpartanNash is a grocery food retailer and distributor; it is the largest food distributer in revenue serving military commissaries in the United States. A Fortune 500 company, SpartanNash is around number 350 on the list.

Dave attributes his success to being a risk-taker and welcoming new challenges. He became involved in his profession due to his desire to be involved in the strategic direction setting of a company and his belief that finance provided the platform to achieve that goal. Throughout his career, he has gained experience in multiple areas of the industry, as SpartanNash is involved in not only the distribution of food, but also the operation of more than 170 supermarkets.

Mr. Staples holds a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Michigan State University. Recently, he was inducted into Worldwide Branding and also maintains an affiliation with the American Institute of CPAs and sits on the board of the Grand Rapids Symphony. Outside of the demands of his executive duties, he supports Feeding America and enjoys cycling, cross-country skiing and boating. Over the next five years, Mr. Staples would like to focus on the integration of a recent merger between Spartan Stores Inc., and the Nash Finch Company to transition from a $2.5 billion company to an $8 billion company. He will also be focused on finding additional strategic growth opportunities for the new company.
