IGA Retailer Tim Henderson Elected to Board at Affiliated Foods Midwest  

 November 27, 2012 


 As a third generation IGA retailer, a member of IGA's NRAB and a 2008 IGA USA Tim Henderson 2012International Retailer of the Year, it's no secret that we at IGA recognize Tim Henderson, owner of Henderson's IGA in Valentine, Neb., as one of the industry's most influential retailers. As it turns out, we're not alone in valuing Tim's retailing insight: Recently Tim was elected as the newest member of the Board of Directors for Norfolk, Nebraska-based Affiliated Foods Midwest, a wholesaler serving grocery retailers in 16 states throughout the Midwest.

The Hendersons have been serving Henderson's IGA shoppers for over 55 years, and during that time they have proven to be strong community leaders. Tim has held many positions within the community, including acting as a member of the city school board, chairman of the Valentine Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, a member of the Cherry County Hospital Board of Trustees, and as a Cherry County Hospital EMS responder. His influence as a successful family business owner goes far beyond the reaches of his community; in addition to serving on the NRAB, Tim is also a member of the National Grocers Association Legislative Committee.

With his extensive retailing experience and insight, it's easy to understand why AFM elected Tim to be one of the seven board members who guide the company in its efforts to serve its customers.

IGA is proud of Tim and the many accomplishments he has achieved in his retailing career. We wish him the very best in his newest role as board member at AFM.

Congratulations, Tim!
