Hannaford is known for its commitment to healthy lifestyles, sustainability and volunteerism.

Lockhart, of Oakland, Calif., was elected to a three-year team after his initial appointment to the board in 2010. He is the regional vice president and chief medical officer for Sutter Health's East Bay Region in California, an affiliate of one of the largest health care associations in the nation.

In addition to the REI board, he is the board chair of NatureBridge, an organization providing environmental science education to 40,000 young people annually in the national parks, and a trustee with the National Parks Conservation Association.

As CEO and president of AMC Entertainment, Inc., he oversees the company's 347 theaters in 32 states, the District of Columbia and four countries. With nearly 30 years in management, marketing, sales and operations, his experience with global consumer brands includes Starbucks Coffee Company, Frito-Lay, Pepsi-Cola Company and Procter & Gamble.

He has been and is active on several public and private company boards, including his current service to the National Association of Theatre Owners and other related industry organizations.
