Springdale, Arkansas-based Tyson Foods has announced Brady Stewart as group president of fresh meats. He began his new role at the start of the new year.

Stewart succeeds Shane Miller, who will conclude more than 30 years of service to Tyson Foods in 2023.

Stewart will report to President and CEO Donnie King and will be responsible for strengthening the competitiveness of the company’s beef and pork businesses through innovation, technology, data and analytics. Stewart’s focus will also include optimizing business processes and building efficiencies in the operational and commercial activities of the business.

“Brady is a well-respected, proven industry leader who will help position us for continued success,” King said. “His background in building business strategies that drive outcomes and identify efficiencies across complex supply chains is critical for this role.”

Stewart brings more than 20 years of experience in the protein industry. He joins the company from Smithfield Foods, where he has served as COO since 2021. In that role, he led Smithfield’s business across its more than 500 company-owned farms and 46 production facilities in the U.S. and developed operating systems that aligned efforts across different segments of the business to drive efficiencies and optimize business activities and outcomes.

Additionally, he was responsible for operations of the company’s vertically integrated domestic supply chain, including sourcing and procurement, transportation, warehousing and logistics. Prior to that, he held the role of chief manufacturing officer and was the EVP of U.S. hog production at Smithfield. He has also worked at the Kansas City Sausage Co. as COO, among other leadership roles.

“The reputation of Tyson Foods and its products are world renowned, and I am delighted to be joining the team to help drive growth and deliver for its customers and consumers,” Stewart said. “I look forward to help strengthening the company’s competitiveness as OneTyson by accelerating innovation and streamlining operations.”

Stewart and Miller will work to ensure a transition as the Fresh Meats corporate team prepares to move to Northwest Arkansas as part of the company’s consolidation of corporate offices to its world headquarters in Springdale.
