After more than 15 years serving as EVP, chief strategy officer and president of Temple, Texas-based McLane Food Service for McLane Co., Tom Zatina retired on April 2.

Zatina joined McLane Co. in January 2006 after more than 20 years of experience in the foodservice industry. During his time at McLane Co., he was responsible for launching the company’s office of strategy, developing a culture toward increased focus on customer service and leading the acquisition and integration of Rocky Mount, North Carolina-based Meadowbrook Meat Co. – one of the nation’s largest customized foodservice distributors for national restaurant chains.

Zatina earned graduate and undergraduate degrees from Central Michigan University and Wayne State University, respectively.

“It has been a privilege and a joy to contribute to the near-term and long-term success of McLane Co.,” said Zatina. “I am thankful and blessed to have worked with wonderful business leaders and teammates who were and still are committed to delivering high quality service to our customers.”

Zatina is a member of The Conference Board Strategy Council, a past chairman of the board of the International Foodservice Distributors Association and past chairman of the Advisory Board of the Western Michigan University Food Marketing Program. His background includes activity in many trade associations, and he has served on several board committees of the Connecticut Food Association and as vice chair of the board of the Food Industry Alliance of New York State. He is also the past chairman of the Government Relations Committee of Food Distributors International.

McLane Co. Inc. is one of the largest supply chain services leaders in the U.S., providing grocery and foodservice solutions for convenience stores, mass merchants, drug stores and chain restaurants. Through McLane Grocery and McLane Foodservice, McLane operates more than 80 distribution centers and one of the nation’s largest private fleets.
