Hormel Foods Corp. has announced a string of leadership changes. Tom Day, executive vice-president of refrigerated foods, will retire at the end of 2020’s first quarter. He will be succeeded by Deanna Brady, group vice-president of consumer sales.

Mr. Day has more than 40 years of leadership experience. Along with refrigerated foods, Hormel’s largest segment, he has led several subsidiaries and divisions, including Hormel Foods food service, Hormel deli solutions, meat products, fresh pork and affiliated businesses, Burke Corp. and Dan’s Prize. He recently oversaw the integration of three acquisitions, including Applegate, Fontanini and Columbus Craft Meats.

“He is a respected mentor and role model to many within the Hormel Foods family,” said James P. Snee, chairman, president and chief executive officer at Hormel Foods. “He will certainly be missed, but his legacy of excellence will live on well beyond his retirement.”

Ms. Brady has led the consumer products sales business since 2015. She has held several leadership roles at Hormel since joining the company in 1996, including vice-president of food service sales and group vice-president of food service.

P.J. Connor, senior vice-president of sales and consumer products, will assume Ms. Brady’s post leading the consumer products sales business. He currently is responsible for all sales activities surrounding the company’s Walmart business. Tony Hoffman, vice-president of planning and support, will succeed Mr. Connor in running Hormel’s Walmart business.
