Siegel Egg Co., a distributor of egg, dairy and bakery ingredients primarily serving commercial bakeries and food service institutions and a portfolio company of Rotunda Capital Partners, has named Matt Whitney as chief executive officer. He succeeds Matt Saunders, who will retire with this transition.

Whitney joins Siegel after serving as chief growth officer of UNFI, a publicly-traded wholesale distributor of food in the U.S. Prior to that, he spent almost eight years at Sysco, most recently as corporate vice president of field transformation and executive vice president of the Boston division. Before that, he was a partner at the Lucas Group and principal at the Parthenon Group.

“Siegel is a regional leader that is poised for accelerated growth, and Matt’s leadership and experience are exactly what we need to continue building on the company’s strong history and dedication to customer service,” comments Dan Lipson, managing partner at Rotunda.
