Summertime must be synonymous with promotions and new hirings. It’s been a pleasure to write stories about those moving up the ladder, and today’s news is no exception. Sysco Corporation recently announced that Greg Bertrand has been promoted to Executive Vice President, U.S. Foodservice Operations, effective July 30, 2018.
Bertrand joined Sysco in 1991, and after a succession of senior foodservice operations positions, was named Senior Vice President, U.S. Foodservice Operations, in 2016. In his role as Executive Vice President, Bertrand will continue to have leadership oversight responsibility for all of Sysco’s U. S. Foodservice Operations segment, which accounted for almost $40 billion in sales for fiscal year 2018.
