Wolpert joined PCC in 2000 as COO and has served as CEO since 2001. During his tenure as CEO the co-op opened four stores and, as of year-end 2013, topped $200 million in sales supported by more than 1,100 employees. He is leaving the cooperative on solid financial ground, with PCC having just opened its 10th store earlier this month, the board said.
