Grimes’ Exit Opens Important Prepared Foods Job at Tyson Foods

Sally Grimes, Tyson Foods group president for prepared foods, is exiting the company later this year when her successor is named and there is an adequate transition period. Grimes gave notice to Tyson Foods this week and the company filed a notice with the federal Securities and Exchange Commission.

Tyson Foods corporate spokesman Gary Mickelson said Grimes’ decision to leave the company later this year reflects her desire to spend more time with her family as she plans to remain in Chicago.

“We will retain an executive recruiting firm to help identify a successor and will consider both internal and external candidates,” Mickelson said.
