Houston-based food distributor Sysco Corp. has promoted Eve McFadden to senior vice president of legal, general counsel and corporate secretary. The move by the food industry giant follows a promotion last year to vice president and general counsel in 2019.
Since joining Sysco in 2008, the company says in a statement that McFadden has provided leadership in the areas of employment law, antitrust compliance, and ethics and compliance. In her new role, Eve will continue to act as general counsel, adding responsibility for Sysco’s Enterprise Risk Management function, under which she recently established a new team focused on developing a global framework for Sysco’s environment, health and safety programs.
Prior to joining Sysco, McFadden worked in private practice at the nation’s largest labor and employment law firm, Littler Mendelson. She earned her B.A. in political science at the University of Washington, and her J.D. from The University of Texas School of Law.
