United States
Published:  07 August, 2017

Tyson Foods has streamlined its organisation in support of a growth strategy announced earlier this year, the company reported on August 2. The new structure is designed around the company’s segments of Beef, Pork, Chicken and Prepared Foods.

“A dynamic market demands we become more agile while focusing on consumers, customers and the businesses that deliver our revenue and profit,” said Tom Hayes, President and CEO of Tyson Foods. “This simple design creates individual responsibility for the performance of our segments to enable faster, better, decisions.”

Group presidents have been selected to lead Tyson’s segments end-to-end. Each will report directly to Hayes and be responsible for growth strategy, execution and developing world class teams in all product categories and customer channels that their segments serve. The changes will take effect immediately. The hide and leather division will fall under the remit of Noel White, Group President, Fresh Meats (Beef and Pork) & International.

The executives selected to oversee the businesses include:

Sally Grimes – Group President, Prepared Foods
Doug Ramsey – Group President, Poultry
Noel White – Group President, Fresh Meats (Beef and Pork) & International
