The company said Wednesday that Ron Vachris, the company’s chief operating officer, will succeed him. The change will take effect on Jan. 1.

In a news release, Costco said the two executives have worked together over nearly the past two years. It described the move as “the culmination of the long-standing succession plan.”

Shares were flat on the news in after-hours trading. So far this year, the company’s stock has shot up by 26% — outperforming both the gains of the S&P 500 and most other publicly traded retailers.

Jelinek has been at the helm of the warehouse club since January 2012.
