Topco Associates, LLC said Friday that Thomas G. Frey is on board as s.v.p. and c.f.o., and that it promoted David P. Picarillo to s.v.p. in charge of TopSource, Topco's not-for-resale program.
Frey will run Topco’s accounting, Co$trac cost-containment services, information technology, internal audit, and treasury areas.

Picarillo has over 21 years of retail supermarket, consulting, and management experience. Before joining BrainTree Sourcing in 2002, he was the managing director of business development for ICG Commerce, and a senior manager with Accenture.
