Carson-Calif.-based Bristol Farms has promoted Chuck Eallonardo to vice president of finance and chief financial officer.

Previously, Eallonardo worked as controller and senior finance director for the company, according to a news release. He recently helped transition the company, which operates 14 specialty grocery stores, from a wholly owned subsidiary of Supervalu to a private-owned company through a management-led buyout. He has been with the company for 11 years.

“It’s an exciting time for Bristol Farms” Eallonardo said in the release. “With the economy continuing to improve, and people spending again, we’re well positioned to take the company to a new level.”

Eallonardo will continue to report to Kevin Davis, president and chief executive officer.
