US Foods Holding announced that Timothy McLevish has resigned from its board of directors, effective immediately, to become executive chairman of Lamb Weston Holdings, upon the completion of its planned spinoff. Because Lamb Weston is a significant supplier to US Foods, McLevish would no longer qualify as an independent director.
The company also announced the election of two new members of the board of directors: David Tehle, who retired in 2015 as chief financial officer of Dollar General, a role he had held since 2004. Prior to Dollar General, he was CFO of Haggar. Tehle will serve as the new chairman of the audit committee for US Foods.
The company also elected Court Carruthers to to its board. Carruthers spent 13 years in senior leadership roles at W. W. Grainger, most recently as group president, Americas, where he was responsible for the company’s operations in the Americas, as well as eCommerce and technology innovation globally.
