President, PFG and President and CEO of Performance Foodservice, leaving
the company to pursue a chief executive role outside the foodservice
industry. As a result of Mr. Flitman's departure, Craig Hoskins,
President and CEO, PFG Customized and Performance Foodservice Sales and

Company over the last three and a half years, and on behalf of our board
and management team, I want to thank him for his contributions," said
George Holm, PFG's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We wish him
well as he begins the next chapter in his career."
