Performance Food Group, the US-based foodservice supplier, has appointed former Compass Group veteran Tom Ondrof as its new CFO.

Ondrof, who will join on 1 October, spent 24 years at Compass‘ North America unit. He replaces Bob Evans, who is retiring after seven years in the job.

“Tom Ondrof is the ideal executive to lead our finance function, and we’re fortunate to have someone of his caliber play a key role on our executive leadership team,” Performance Food Group president and CEO George Holm. “Tom is a seasoned business leader who combines extensive foodservice experience with a significant background in strategic executive positions. While serving as CFO of Compass, he helped achieve exceptional revenue and profit growth.”

Holm added: “Bob Evans led PFG in its critical transition from a private company to a public company with a very successful IPO and an enhanced capital structure,” added Holm. “He leaves us with a very solid financial foundation and we wish him the best.”
