US Foods Holding Corp. has named John Tonnison as its new executive VP, chief information and digital officer.
Reporting to chairman and CEO Pietro Satriano, he’ll oversee the food manufacturer and foodservice distributor’s technology vision and strategy, as well as all IT functions, including digital, cybersecurity, applications and infrastructure. He replaces CIO Keith Rohland, who departed the company in March.
US Foods has more than 70 distribution centers and partners with around 300,000 restaurants and foodservice operators, and Satriano cited Tonnison’s more than three decades of technology, operational efficiency and innovation experience in a statement announcing the hire.
“He will be instrumental in driving our information technology vision forward as we deliver on our commitment to bring US Foods customers best-in-class digital commerce solutions,” Satriano added.
Tonnison most recently served as executive VP and CIO at Tech Data Corporation, where he was responsible for the company’s global innovation strategy, information digital capabilities and operations. He spent nearly two decades at the distributor of business and consumer technologies.
Before Tech Data, he was VP and chief technology officer for Technology Solutions Network.
The executive will lead all aspects of PMI’s supply chain operations in the North America and EMEA regions – including sales, demand and supply planning, sourcing, manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics.
