Hormel Foods Corp. in late March announced two imminent retirements and a handful of promotions, in part to replace those retiring officers.

Retiring soon are Roland Gentzler, vice president of finance and treasurer, and James Schroeder, vice president of engineering. As a result, Gary Jamison, vice president and chief financial officer at Jennie-O Turkey Store, will advance to vice president and treasurer and Tyler Hulsebus, director of purchasing, will advance to vice president of engineering.

Additionally, the company announced the promotion of James Sheehan, vice president and controller, to vice president and chief accounting officer, reporting to Jody Feragen, chief financial officer. As a result, Jana Haynes, director of investor relations, will advance to vice president and controller, reporting to Sheehan. Sheehan will also oversee the IT organization in addition to his current reports.

All changes are effective May 30.
