Tyson Foods Inc. announced that the company is making organizational changes to improve operational agility, customer experience and speed of innovation to market.
“Consumer preferences are changing and evolving at a rapid pace,” said president and chief executive Dean Banks. “We must accelerate our pace of change to not only meet but exceed our customers’ expectations while delivering high quality, innovative products. That’s why we’re adapting our organization to enable our businesses to respond rapidly to the changing environment.”
Each of Tyson Foods’ four business segments – poultry, beef, pork and prepared foods – will be equipped with the resources and structure needed to enable quicker response and innovation at the speed of the markets they serve.
Additionally, Tyson Foods has named Donnie King as its chief operating officer, reporting to Banks. King will lead and enable the changes needed for operational excellence and continuous improvements. He will also continue to be the poultry group president, furthering the many improvements that he is already implementing.
