Sysco's Tom Bene Named EVP And President Of Foodservice Operations, Effective Jan. 1, 2015


Sysco Corporation (NYSE: SYY) announced today that Tom Bené has been appointed executive vice president and president of foodservice operations, effective Jan. 1, 2015. Bené will succeed Mike Green, who previously announced his intention to retire from Sysco at the end of 2014 after 24 years of distinguished service.

Bené will report directly to Bill DeLaney, Sysco president and chief executive officer, and have management responsibility for Sysco's U.S. broadline operations, SYGMA, specialty meat companies, FreshPoint, Guest Supply, European Imports, international, shared services and revenue management. Pending the close of Sysco's merger with US Foods, all commercial functions, including contract sales, marketing, merchandising, e-commerce and quality assurance, will also continue to report to Bené. As previously announced, management of these functions will transition to other executives once the transaction has closed.

"Tom is a proven commercial leader with deep expertise and a strong track record in the foodservice industry," DeLaney said. "Since joining Sysco early in 2013, he has helped drive major advances in category management, revenue management, sales capability, and customer insights and segmentation. We are fortunate to have such a capable leader to succeed Mike."

Bené joined Sysco as executive vice president and chief merchandising officer in March of 2013 and was named executive vice president and chief commercial officer in August of that year. Prior to joining Sysco, Bené was president of PepsiCo Foodservice, where he held a variety of positions of increasing responsibility in sales, operations, franchise development and general management over 23 years of service.
