business news in context, analysis with attitude

A story yesterday about award-winners at the National Grocers Association (NGA) convention accidentally listed the 2016 winners, not the 2017 awardees. (When I say "editing error," let's be clear. I am both the writer and editor. I screwed up. I have no explanation for how this happened.)

Let me try again:
 
The Thomas K. Zaucha Entrepreneurial Excellence Award was presented to Rich Niemann, Jr., President and CEO of Niemann Foods, Inc. The Zaucha award is "presented annually to recognize an independent grocer that exemplifies persistence, vision, and creative entrepreneurship."

And, the Thomas F. Wenning Pinnacle PAC Award was presented to Roger Collins, Chairman of Harps Food Stores. The Wenning award "is presented to an NGA member who helps advance the role and presence of the independent grocer and NGA in government and political affairs."

My apologies for the mistake.
