​Kehe Distributors on Wednesday said it has appointed Timothy J. Wiggins as its CFO, effective July 11.

Wiggins succeeds Chris Meyers, who left the Naperville, Ill.-based natural products distributor for Spartan Nash earlier this year.

Wiggins will be responsible for leading all aspects of Kehe’s finance function and strategic planning, as well as business unit and subsidiary performance. He will also serve as a member of the board of World Finer Foods, a Kehe subsidiary, and as a member of the advisory board to Tree of Life Canada.

“After an extensive nationwide search, we are pleased to welcome Tim Wiggins to the team,” Brandon Barnholt, president and CEO, said in a statement. “Tim brings a depth of financial experience in the public and private sectors that will be valuable as we continue to drive shareholder value. Just as important, Tim is an excellent cultural fit due to his commitment to the development of people and a desire to help us live out our mission and values.”
