Las Vegas-based HF Foods Group Inc. has appointed Xi Lin “Felix Lin” as chief operating officer of the company, effective May 1. Lin will report directly to Peter Zhang, CEO.

“With Felix joining the team, I look forward to further strengthening our capabilities through new initiatives that will increase our presence in existing markets and improve our overall operations efficiency,” Zhang said. “In addition, this change shows a continuous commitment to our professional transformation.”

Lin has served as an independent board member for the company since November 2019, where he served as chairman of the audit committee and the special investigation committee. He will continue to serve on the board of directors until another independent director is appointed.

Most recently, Lin was VP and a senior strategy officer for Blue Bird Corporation, overseeing human resources, corporate and operations training, government relations, compliance and strategy. During his time at Blue Bird Corp., Lin also held leadership positions in manufacturing operations, supply chain, finance and accounting.

Earlier in his career, Lin worked as a key member of the China and Middle East business development team for Blue Bird Corp. under Cerberus Capital Management.

Lin has a bachelor’s degree in finance and accounting from Mercer University, a masters of accounting degree from Georgia College and State University and a master’s in business administration degree from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“Felix is a very valuable member of our board of directors,” said Russell Libby, chairman of the board. “While we will be sorry to lose his contributions and leadership on the board, we are excited to have him join the HF Group management team. We will immediately commence a search for his successor on the board.”
