The Chefs' Warehouse Appoints John Austin as CFO

The Chefs’ Warehouse, a distributor of specialty food products in the US, has appointed John Austin as its chief financial officer (CFO), effective 1 July 2012. Ken Clark, the company’s current CFO, will be named special advisor to the CFO, as of 1 July 2012, and will remain with the company until 6 March 2013.

Since July 2011, Austin has been a member of the company’s board of directors, as well as chair of the audit committee and a member of the company’s compensation committee, roles that he stepped down from on 24 May 2012.

Austin brings over 23 years of financial-related experience. He joins The Chef’s Warehouse from the Hilb Group where, since 2009, he has served as CFO. Previously, Austin served in progressively more responsible financial capacities with Performance Food Group (PFG), including serving as PFG’s CFO for the six years leading up to PFG’s sale to a consortium of private equity sponsors in May 2008.

Prior to joining PFG, Austin spent four years as the assistant controller for General Medical, a Richmond-based distributor of medical supplies. He spent the first six years of his career in public accounting, primarily with the Richmond office of Deloitte & Touche.
