(Updated) Tyson Exec Glendinning Submits Resignation; Will Be New CEO of Fashion Apparel Retailer

Sept. 7, 2023
Stewart Glendinning took over leadership of Tyson Foods’ Prepared Foods division, which has been a bright spot for the company in 2023, just last year.

According to a Form 8-K filing with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), Stewart Glendinning, Tyson Foods president, Prepared Foods, has notified the company of his resignation effective Sept. 14, 2023.

Glendinning joined Tyson Foods in 2017 as chief financial officer, a role he held until September 2022. At that point, he shifted to lead the Prepared Foods division upon the departure of Noelle O’Mara in the wake of the announcement that Tyson would be closing its Dakota Dunes, S.D., and Chicago offices, moving all corporate positions in those locations to its Springdale, Ark., world headquarters.

In a year that has clobbered the protein processor overall, the Prepared Foods division has carried its weight and then some, turning a profit in the most recent quarter and being called, in some reports, a major growth engine for the company. With Glendinning resigning after about a year at the helm, that engine soon will have a new captain steering it.


Glendinning will leave the food industry entirely and join Express Inc. as its new CEO, leading the fashion apparel retailer effective Sept. 15, according to a release from Express Inc.
