PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Jack Stahl has been appointed to the board of directors of United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI). Mr. Stahl’s appointment reflects UNFI’s decision to bring on additional expertise following the company’s acquisition of SuperValu last year.

Previously, he was chief executive officer at Revlon, Inc. from 2002 until his retirement in 2006. Before that, he held several management positions at the Coca-Cola Co., eventually becoming president and chief operating officer in 2000.
He also serves on the board of Advantage Solution, L.L.C. and on the United States board of advisers for private equity firm CVC Capital. He previously was on the boards of Schering-Plough Corp., Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Saks, Inc., Coty, Inc., and Ahold Delhaize.
“Jack’s extensive executive leadership background and significant board experience will make him a valuable addition to our board of directors,” said Steven L. Spinner, chairman and chief executive officer at UNFI. “Jack’s proven track record within the food and consumer products industry is unmatched. He is an exceptional addition to our board and will serve our company and shareholders well.”
