Steve Selcer, a restaurant industry veteran, is a former Los Angeles CFO of the Year.

July 3 — Guckenheimer Foodservice has hired Steve Selcer as its chief financial officer. Company CEO Randall Boyd said he hopes that Selcer will help position the Redwood Shores, Calif.-based food management firm for continued expansion.

"Steve's experience as a seasoned CFO, with extensive expertise growing companies in the hospitality and foodservice industries, is an excellent fit with our growth plans for Guckenheimer as we continue to expand our offerings of workplace wellness," said Boyd in a news release.

In 1999, Selcer became CFO for Worldwide Restaurant Concepts, a 400-unit restaurant group that operates multiple brands in 11 countries. Selcer joined Oakwood Worldwide in 2000 as SVP and CFO where he was actively involved in the operating organization as a member of the senior executive team.

In addition to a CPA, Selcer holds a Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration and Master's in Taxation both from the University of Southern California.

Selcer's announcement follows the recent news of Guckenheimer's Blue Glass Café and corporate dining facilities at Google San Francisco, Clorox and Union Pacific becoming the first contract foodservice operations in the nation to achieve REAL Certification from The United States Healthful Food Council (USHFC) for nutrition and sustainability practices.
