Timothy P. Connolly has resigned as executive vice-president and chief supply chain officer for US Foods Holding Corp., effective immediately. Mr. Connolly assumed the role in May.

The company said it will conduct a search for Mr. Connolly’s successor. His role was to oversee US Foods’ supply chain organization, including safety, warehousing, transportation, supply chain strategy, operations and labor relations.

“Tim’s commitment to supply chain excellence and passion for his work have left a positive mark on our organization,” said Pietro Satriano, chairman and chief executive officer of US Foods. “His leadership will be missed. I am grateful for his service and we wish him the very best.”

Mr. Connolly joined US Foods from Uline, where he was senior vice-president of operations since 2016. Before that, he worked for 16 years with Essendant, most recently as chief operating officer overseeing a network of more than 70 distribution centers. Previously, Mr. Connolly managed supply chain operations at Cardinal Health as regional vice president, served as operations manager for Beloit Beverage Co. and was a warehouse supervisor for McKesson.
