Stocks in this article: SYY

HOUSTON, Aug. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sysco Corporation (NYSE:SYY) today announced executive leadership changes to strengthen the connection among the commercial functions of merchandising, supply chain, marketing and sales, as well as to maintain continuity within its vast network of foodservice operations.

Tom Bené, who joined Sysco earlier this year in the newly-created role of executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, has been named executive vice president and chief commercial officer. Mike Green, executive vice president and group president, has been named executive vice president and president of Foodservice Operations. Bené and Green continue to report to Bill DeLaney, Sysco's president and chief executive officer.

In this new role, Bené's responsibilities include strategic oversight of Sysco's entire commercial chain – merchandising, supply chain, marketing and sales – to drive profitable growth across the enterprise. This allows for the cohesive coordination and management of several key Sysco functions, including category management, revenue management, customer insights and segmentation, sales capability, logistics and quality assurance. Green will continue to have profit-and-loss responsibility for all Sysco broadline and specialty operations. This includes the more than 46,000 associates working in the 193 distribution facilities where the safe storage and delivery of Sysco's vast product selection takes place.

"Tom Bené and Mike Green are clearly among the best at what they do in our industry, and we are fortunate to have them on the Sysco leadership team," DeLaney said. "In the brief time that Tom has been at Sysco, he has quickly demonstrated strength and leadership skill in the commercial areas of merchandising, marketing and sales. This change also allows us to provide clarity for Tom's and Mike's leadership roles as they partner to provide value and to ensure our customers' trust on a daily basis."
