Aniel Wade, an employee of Vision Ace Hardware in LaBelle, Florida, rescued a family from a burning building in February, a feat that earned him a full-page writeup in the recent issue of Men's Health, in which he was dubbed an "Everyday Hero."

According to multiple media reports, 20-year-old Wade was busy making deliveries in Alva, Florida, when he came upon a burning house with an elderly woman out front, gasping for air.

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.
