One of Sysco’s distinguished leaders has earned national attention, as Board Member and Chair of Sysco’s Technology Committee, Sheila G. Talton, has nabbed a distinguished new title. Savoy magazine, a national publication that drives positive dialogue about Black culture, recognized Talton as one of 2021’s Most Influential Black Corporate Directors.
Talton is lauded for helping to enhance Sysco’s ability to serve its customers through modern technology tools, data, and analytics, a press release stated. She currently serves as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Gray Matter Analytics, a firm focused on data analytics consulting services in the healthcare industry.
Additionally, Talton has been a Congressional appointee to the U.S. White House Women’s Business Council, and has been recognized as one of the “Top 10 Women in Technology” by Enterprising Women and as “Entrepreneur of the Year” by the National Federation of Black Women Business Owners. She also serves on the Boards of several nonprofit organizations, including Chicago’s Northwest Hospital Foundation, the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, and the Chicago Urban League.
Kevin Hourican, Sysco’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the importance of Talton’s recent recognition.
“Sysco congratulates Sheila on receiving this distinguished honor,” said Hourican. “Sheila is a progressive thinker who consistently drives our company to advance our capabilities, and we are grateful for the leadership, positive voice, and unique business perspective that she brings to our Board.”
