Marion, Iowa-based Rapids and Affiliates, a foodservice equipment and supplies dealership and service provider, has promoted Eric Schmitt to president as part of the company’s long-term succession plan.

Schmitt will take over for Joe Schmitt, former president, and Joe Dodds, former executive vice president, who are moving into advisory roles. Co-owner Geri Schmitt will continue as director of human resources.

Schmitt joined Rapids and Affiliates nine years ago, most recently serving as vice president.
