Services Group of America (“SGA”) is a privately owned, diversified investment company with over 50 years of experience in buying and building industry leading companies and real estate investing. Our view toward investment strategy is formed by our experience over four decades operating our family owned portfolio of integrated food companies covering broadline and systems distribution, protein manufacturing, produce brokerage, and freight logistics.
We transformed these enterprises into industry leaders through the relentless pursuit of two key components; understanding our Customer better than anyone else to provide them unmatched service and creating a Culture that allows our Associates to thrive and create value.
By bringing together the very best people, providing them the required resources along with a free thinking operating platform, we created unparalleled and enduring value in the food sector through our ownership of Food Services of America (“FSA”), Systems Services of America (“SSA”), Amerifresh, Ameristar and GAMPAC, (collectively “The Food Group”).
In 2010, with the passing of SGA’s founder Thomas J. Stewart, his son, Slade, took over the business and its Associates, as his father had planned. Slade’s career path, including hands-on experience at the core of enterprise operations, has given him the institutional knowledge and the experience needed to further the vision of the company. To date, Slade’s executive experience has encompassed senior leadership positions as Executive Vice President FSA, President of Amerifresh, President of GAMPAC and currently Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of SGA.
Since 2010, Slade and his team have continued the company’s successful record of creating value through the setting and execution of its strategic vision. SGA doubled its real estate investment portfolio in the state of Arizona and greatly expanded the service capability of the Food Group. Under Slade’s leadership, SGA created an industry leading foodservice e-commerce platform, a transformational multi-channel customer service model, and deployed science based pricing technology.
Rewarded by the Food Group’s customers for its high level of service and customer centric approach, Slade continued to invest in the growth and infrastructure of the Food Group through projects including:
On Sept. 13, 2019, SGA announced the close of the sale of its food-related subsidiaries to US Foods (NYSE: USFD). US Foods, the second-largest foodservice distributor in the nation, acquired five SGA subsidiaries:
Today, SGA continues to be a privately-held investment company with a diverse portfolio of assets, including Development Services of America (DSA), SGA’s core real estate subsidiary responsible for developing and managing a wide range of commercial properties in the U.S.
