Jim Ackroyd, CEO of Vision Ace Hardware in Naples, Fla., will assume chairman-of-the board status at Ace Hardware Corp. in June 2014.

Ace Hardware, which underwent a CEO transition earlier this year as John Venhuizen replaced the retiring Ray Griffith, delayed the transition of the chairman position to mitigate disruption, according to the co-op.

Ackroyd will replace Dave Ziegler of Ziegler’s Ace, which has nine locations in Illinois. Vision Ace operates 11 locations in Florida.
