OMAHA — David M. Faith has been elected president at The Scoular Co. He succeeds Randal Linville, who retired earlier this year after 25 years with the company, including the past 10 as president and chief executive officer. Earlier this year the board of directors of The Scoular Co. elected Charles (Chuck) Elsea to fill Mr. Linville's c.e.o. role.

Mr. Faith is a 25-year veteran of The Scoular Co., joining the company as a grain merchant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1984. After relocating to Omaha in 1987, he became president and chief operating officer of the company’s Vic’s Popping Corn subsidiary while also holding other corporate responsibilities. After the Vic’s business was sold, Mr. Faith assumed responsibility for information technology and shortly thereafter accounting and control under the Enterprise Development Group umbrella.

In addition to his new responsibilities as president, Mr. Faith will continue to oversee and direct the company’s accounting and control, business finance, trade finance and information technology groups.
