As part of a series of changes to company leadership, Jonathan Gustafson has become president of Ace Mart Restaurant Supply. Jonathan, who has been with Ace Mart for more than 17 years, succeeds Paul Gustafson as president of the Texas-based dealership.
In addition, Carl Gustafson will retire from his position as Ace Mart vice president at the end of 2021, making way for Stephanie Bean, who has been promoted to vice president of people strategy and human resources.
Both Paul and Carl will remain connected to Ace Mart, serving in advisory roles.
Jonathan represents the third generation of the Gustafson family to serve as Ace Mart president. His grandfather, Norman “Gus” Gustafson founded Ace Mart in 1975 and was succeeded by Jonathan’s father, Paul.
Ace Mart reported annual sales of $100.12 million in 2020, making it the 17th largest foodservice equipment and supplies dealer in the country, per FE&S 2021 Distribution Giants study. And in 2016, Ace Mart received FE&S Dealer of the Year award.
