Palm Beach, Fla. – An extremely successful National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Annual Meeting culminated with the presentation of the Robert B. Begley award to Tim Hayes, former president of Bayer Consumer Health.
As much as your business accomplishments, the Begley award recognizes your personality, leadership style, wit, kindness and winning spirit.
Hayes has been with the company for nearly 25 years – including 15 years as president of Bayer Consumer Health. Throughout his career, he has held positions of increasing responsibility in sales, business development, mergers and acquisition and strategic business management.
In presenting the award to Hayes, newly-elected NACDS Chairman of the Board Martin Otto, chief merchant and chief financial officer of H-E-B, quoted Hayes’ successor, Erica Mann, president of Bayer Consumer Health, on her reaction to hearing the news of her colleague’s award: “There are a few, very special times when you receive news that makes you stand up and cheer… because it is so good and so right.
“As much as your business accomplishments, the Begley award recognizes your personality, leadership style, wit, kindness and winning spirit. And this is why no one deserves the honor more than you do.”
The Robert B. Begley Award—established in 1980—is named in memory of former NACDS Chairman of the Board Robert B. Begley and honors an individual who possesses qualities of great personal warmth, generous spirit and longtime service to the industry.
Hayes was recognized by his colleagues, friends and family at the NACDS Annual Meeting dinner and awards ceremony tonight.
