SPRINGDALE, Ark. – Rick Thomason was promoted to president and general manager of Tyson de Mexico.

Thomason has worked for Tyson Foods Inc. since 1991 in many different roles within the company's finance and accounting group. He was vice president of accounting for Tyson Foods' international business before his promotion. Thomason is a graduate of Missouri State Univ. with a bachelor’s degree in accounting.

“Rick played a critical role in Tyson Foods’ international growth over the last several years,” said Rob Tanksley, senior vice president of Tyson’s Latin America business unit. “He was instrumental in driving our international business to achieve strong earnings growth. In Mexico, he will be part of a very successful team and make a crucial contribution to its success in the future.”

Tyson de Mexico is Tyson Foods' oldest and most established international business. Tyson de Mexico markets products under the Tyson, Del Dia and Granja San Martin brands. The company, which also exports chicken to Vietnam and Guatemala, recently expanded into central Mexico to accommodate customers in that region.
