US Foods Announces Changes to Board of Directors

US Foods Holding Corp. announced that Timothy R. McLevish has resigned effective immediately from his position on the Board of Directors after it was announced that he will become the Executive Chairman of Lamb Weston Holdings, Inc. Because Lamb Weston is a significant supplier to US Foods, McLevish would no longer qualify as an independent director.

US Foods also announced it has added David Tehle and Court Carruthers to its board of directors. Tehle retired in 2015 as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Dollar General Corporation. Court Carruthers spent 13 years in senior leadership roles at W. W. Grainger, Inc., most recently as Group President, Americas.
