New Hy-Vee CEO Aaron Wiese will be joined in the role by Jeremy Gosch

Less than a month after naming Aaron Wiese as successor to Hy-Vee CEO, Randy Edeker, the West Des Moines-based grocery chain, Iowa’s largest employer, has elevated Jeremy Gosch to co -CEO and President of Retail Operations.

Wiese will oversee the subsidiaries and supply chain, Hy-Vee said in a press release Wednesday. Both will report to Edeker, who will step down as CEO on October 1, but will continue in his other role as the company’s chairman.

The announcement of Wiese’s ongoing promotion came in late July. At the time, the company said Gosch would remain president and chief operating officer, positions he was promoted to in December.

In Wednesday’s press release, Edeker said the CEO position had become too big for one person. He did not elaborate on why Gosch was not initially promoted to co-CEO. Hy-Vee did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the reason for the change.
