It is official Sysco Albany, NY will report to Syracuse, Kevin will run the region. I am not sure why maybe because he is former Pepisco and Tom B has shielded his picks from the cuts. Sorry to all of those in Merch, Sales and BR, lots of heads will be cut. Some of them are outstanding people. I am not sure where they will go the other FS Dist are in even worse shape. Going to a very bad day for all. I am sorry.

We saw with the changes in 19 when we had local graphic support then there were none. L&D will be regional, BR will be regional, marketing they dont really do anything will be regional, specialists will be limited due to the lack of indy accounts. Albany has lots of competition and we lost our best to them. The business is not bouncing back and share holders want better results. I think if Iwas at any level in an OPCO I would have my resume tuned up and be ready for the worst. I am lucky I landed before covid. It is a very tough job market for all of us, good luck everyone.
Why do you say there will be cuts because of him leading the region? Are they over staffed to begin with? I thought merchandising and BR was safe, I thought all cuts were upper and middle management. I mean how thin can we get?
Is he worse than Spack??
Not sure there are enough jobs in the market right now to accommodate all the 'soon-to-be-available' candidates....
Tough times in the Industry ahead.
