Giorgio Matteo Tarditi: Steering UNFI Towards New Financial Horizons


United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI) is thrilled to announce the appointment of Giorgio Matteo Tarditi as its new President and Chief Financial Officer, starting April 15, 2024. Tarditi, a seasoned executive with over 26 years of experience at General Electric (GE), brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to UNFI, having served as CFO for seven distinct business units. His tenure at GE covered a broad spectrum of industries, including Renewable Energy, Energy Connections, and significant divisions within the Power, Oil & Gas, Aerospace, and Healthcare sectors.

As UNFI embarks on a new chapter, Tarditi’s role will be pivotal in steering the company towards sustained growth and operational excellence. Reporting directly to UNFI’s CEO, Sandy Douglas, Tarditi will be an integral part of the senior leadership team. His mission is clear: to drive performance and further cement UNFI’s commitment to a customer- and supplier-focused strategy that meets the evolving needs of the marketplace.

In his capacity as President and CFO, Tarditi will oversee a comprehensive portfolio of responsibilities. This includes leading corporate finance, treasury, strategy, financial planning and analysis, tax, accounting, investor relations, risk management, and shared services functions. His leadership is expected to fortify UNFI’s financial health and strategic positioning, ensuring the company remains at the forefront of the distribution industry.

Tarditi steps into the role succeeding John W. Howard, UNFI’s current Chief Financial Officer, who will be departing the company following a smooth transition period. This change marks a significant milestone for UNFI as it continues to build on its legacy of innovation and leadership in the food distribution sector.

As UNFI looks to the future, the addition of Giorgio Matteo Tarditi to its executive team signifies a renewed commitment to excellence, strategic growth, and the relentless pursuit of delivering value to customers, suppliers, and shareholders alike. Under Tarditi’s financial stewardship, UNFI is poised for a new era of success and leadership in the dynamic world of food distribution.
