Performance Food Group Company today announced that Tom Ondrof will join PFG as Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer, effective Oct. 1, 2016.
Ondrof will lead PFG’s corporate finance department and oversee accounting, tax, treasury, investor relations and financial planning. As a member of the executive leadership team, he will report directly to George Holm, PFG President & CEO.
Ondrof joins PFG following a 24-year career with Compass Group North America, a $14-billion global leader in contract foodservice and a subsidiary of London-based Compass Group plc. During his tenure he served as Director of Financial Planning (1991-1996), Corporate Controller (1996-1999) and Chief Financial Officer (1999-2010). He was named Chief Strategy Officer in 2010 before serving in his most recent position of Chief Development Officer from 2013-2015.
“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,” said 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.”
Ondrof succeeds Bob Evans, who is retiring after serving as CFO for seven years. “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.”

A new wave of brands is emerging that promotes indulgence and rejects the notion of sacrifice.
