Tyson Foods has announced a series of senior management changes.

Tyson Foods has announced a series of senior management changes. In keeping with plans for succession of its senior management, Tyson announced that Richard L. Bond has been elected by the board of directors as president and chief executive officer of the company and will report to the board. The action, which is effective immediately, was taken during the board's regular quarterly meeting. John Tyson will continue to serve as chairman of the board. Meanwhile, Richard Greubel, Jr. has been named group vice president--international. Greubel comes to Tyson from Monsanto where he most recently served as president, managing director and commercial acceptance lead for Monsanto Brazil. Greg Huett, Tyson's current group vice president-international, will remain in the position until Greubel starts to work on or before August 1. Huett will continue to be part of the company's international business during a period of transition, before moving on to another leadership position within the company. In other developments, James Lochner has been named senior group vice president of Fresh Meats and margin optimization. Lochner will oversee the company's beef and pork business and will also continue to oversee such departments as commodity trading and risk management, production planning and aviation. Donnie Smith, who has been serving as senior vice president and chief information officer for Tyson Foods, will now take on additional responsibility for warehousing, distribution and corporate purchasing, and is therefore being designated group vice president, information systems, purchasing, and distribution. Most of these functions were previously managed by James Lochner.
