BY CSA STAFF

Guitar Center's annual drumming competition has crowned another winner, drawing celebrity musicians and music lovers from all over the United States for the big event.

This year's winner was Tony Taylor Jr. At only 18 years old, Tony has been drumming for most of his life and hopes to be able to continue developing a career as a professional touring musician and honing his skills as a producer and audio engineer.

"In the weeks leading up to the finals I practiced and prayed constantly, and when I heard my name come through that loudspeaker as the winner, it was a true moment of awe and gratitude. All I could think about was how this was going to change my life for the better in such a drastic and meaningful way."

Supermarket chain names CEO

BY Marianne Wilson

The Golub Corp., operators of the Price Chopper grocery store chain, named Scott Grimmett as president and CEO. Grimmett, who has been part of the family-owned company’s succession plan since joining Golub in January 2012 as executive VP and COO, is the first non-family member to head up the chain. He replaces Jerry Golub, who has been appointed vice chairman of the board

Grimmett is credited with helping to spearhead the company's transition from its Price Chopper brand to its updated Market 32 format, which has become the basis for the chain’s next generation of stores.

“This is an exciting time for our company,” said Neil Golub, chairman of the board. “While international conglomerates and Wall St. continue to consolidate our industry, we are investing in our future as a strong, American-owned, family-built regional chain.”

Prior to joining Golub, Grimmett spent 37 years at Safeway. Starting as a bagger, he worked his way up the company ladder to become a store manager, district manager and VP of retail operations. He also served as president for several divisions of the company, the last of which was Safeway’s Denver division, which consisted of 141 stores in five states.

“Scott possesses unique skills and perspectives that have helped us significantly elevate how we approach our business. I am confident that in this new role he will continue to lead us to new heights,” said Jerry Golub who will lead a new board finance committee focused on accelerating the conversion of Price Chopper stores to the Market 32 banner.

Golub Corp. operates 136 Price Chopper and Market 32 grocery stores in New York, Vermont, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
