Stephen Goldsmith replaces Tres Lund, chief executive officer of Lund Food Holdings Inc., although Lund will continue to be a “major shareholder” in Arcadia, according to a statement from the company.
Goldsmith, a Republican, now teaches at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. He led Indianapolis from 1992 to 1999 and is credited with helping revitalize the city’s downtown area.
“Steve Goldsmith is a well-respected public figure both regionally and nationally, and we are delighted that he will bring his health care insight and world-class governance expertise to Arcadia’s board,” said Marvin Richardson, Arcadia’s chief executive officer.
Operating under the brand Arcadia HealthCare, the company provides home care, medical staffing and pharmacy services under its DailyMed program. Publicly traded Arcadia says it has 72 locations in 21 states. The company will issue its second-quarter results on Nov. 16.
