In his new role, he will manage relationships with Topco's member-owners. Randle will report directly to Steve Lauer, Topco's president and chief executive officer.

"This is a well-deserved appointment," Lauer said. "Paul's knowledge and wealth of experience in the food industry will serve Topco and its members well as we strive to continue our solid record of success."
