Tom Hayes was in midst of overhauling strategy for the U.S.s top meat company; Noel White is chosen by board as successor ===========================================================================
yson Foods Inc. said Chief Executive Tom Hayes is leaving at the end of this month for personal reasons, a surprise leadership shift as the top U.S. meat company revamps its strategy to prioritize branded meat products.
Tyson said Monday that Noel White, a longtime Tyson executive who has overseen chicken, beef and pork processing, will become its new chief executive.
The abrupt change surprised Tyson employees and investors, coming less than two years into Mr. Hayess tenure. He has focused on overhauling Tysons executive leadership team and repositioning the 83-year-old meat giant as a modern food company marketing branded consumer products, such as Jimmy Dean sausages and Hillshire Farm cold cuts.
Mr. Hayes said in an interview that his decision to leave wasnt related to any issues of personal conduct or integrity at Tyson. The 53-year-old said he isnt facing significant health problems and that he isnt pursuing a job at another company. He said his decision was driven by things that are personal to me.

Another victim of #MeToo??
Was he a trump supporter?
I don’t know, he may like pizza.....................
Not that I know of................
Or illegal alien employment policies. Or both.
The Tyson company has a long history with the Clintons, back to the Arkansas days. Don’t know about this guy personally.
The last time that I checked, chickens weren't vegetarian and insects are meat ...
That’s what I thought..every time I see their products in the store I refer to them as...Clinton Chicken.
Tyson has a history of hiring illegal aliens.
Perhaps he wants out before the raids on their plants begin.
The factor that makes the cattle futures scandal relevant is that Hillary Clinton received her trading advice from Tyson Foods outside counsel. Tyson was a major agricultural producer in Arkansas and had numerous issues that Attorney General and later Governor Bill Clinton could affect.
One such issue involved enforcement of environmental regulations affecting Tysons chicken-processing plants... In 1977, the state pollution control agency reissued the license for Tyson's Green Forest plant on the condition that the company meet with city officials to work out a plan for treating its wastes. But the state never enforced the order, and in May 1983, the waste from the plant seeped into the town's drinking water. Residents became ill, and 15 months later Governor Clinton declared the town a disaster area.
During Mr. Clinton's tenure in Arkansas, Tyson benefited from a variety of state actions, including $9 million in government loans, the placement of company executives on important state boards and favorable decisions on environmental issues.
Tyson appears to have obtained these results for what looks like a bribe delivered though Hillary Clintons commodities account. To quote the companys former chairman: politics is a series of unsentimental transactions between those who need votes and those who have money.
I’m confused. Are they saying they want to be more like J immy Dean and Hillshire Farms, or that they’re taking them over. If so, that means I won’t be able to eat them anymore.
Walmart and Tysons are the 800 lb gorillas of the Arkansas economy.
Tysons has even more of a constituency among the electorate there, as chicken farming for Tyson is a major part of their agricultural sector (they also grow a lot of rice).
They, Tyson, own them...............
Yup and those hens eating those bugs make for some real tasty eggs. Full of Protein and tasty, firm and bright yellow yokes.
Not the washed out yellow, runny stuff you get from the store.
Tyson and the Clintons are linked.
FISA is out.
I’d say he may be bugging out.
Won’t do him any good....................
As long as the GOP lives to sabotage, I rule nothing out.
The RINOs are stampeding for the exits..................
