US Foods Holding Corp., one of America’s leading foodservice distributors, announced key changes to its executive leadership team effective immediately.

Andrew Iacobucci, senior executive vice president, field operations and chief commercial officer, is leaving US Foods to accept a CEO role outside the company. Iacobucci served as the company’s interim CEO in 2022 prior to Dave Flitman filling the permanent CEO position in January 2023.

The company has named Jim Sturgell, executive vice president, chief commercial officer responsible for local sales, commercial excellence, and merchandising/marketing, and Randy Taylor, executive vice president, field operations with P&L responsibility for the company’s broadline business and stock yards. Both will report to Flitman as part of his executive leadership team.

“We thank Andrew for his leadership, particularly for his service as interim CEO last year, and wish him much success,” Flitman said in the announcement. “We have a strong bench of talent here at US Foods. I am confident that Jim and Randy will bring their years of experience, strong track records and leadership skills to their new appointments and play key roles in driving continued execution against our long-range plan.”

Sturgell joined US Foods in 1992 and most recently served as senior vice president, commercial excellence and local sales, where he was accountable for identifying, designing and deploying best practices related to sales, merchandising and pricing and executing sales strategies to deliver profitable market share growth. Sturgell has held a range of leadership roles within the company including senior vice president of commercial excellence, region president, area president, division president, vice president of sales, regional sales manager, district sales manager and territory manager. He earned his Bachelor of Science from Salisbury State University.

Taylor has been with US Foods for more than 15 years and served as regional president Southeast since 2016 where he was responsible for leading the execution of US Foods strategy in the region, optimizing operating results and acting as a strategic partner in the development of the company’s plans and programs. Prior to that, Taylor was senior vice president, field operations deployment, overseeing the design and deployment of its field operating structure across all markets. He previously served as division president, Southern New England, and vice president, finance, for Manassas, Virginia. Taylor earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting from James Madison University and a Master of Business Administration from the Kenan-Flagler Business School at University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill.
