SPRINGDALE, ARK. – Tyson Foods Inc. confirmed that Danyel Bischof was recently promoted to the chief technology officer for the company.

Bischof previously worked as vice president of IT for poultry, prepared foods and customer enablement for Tyson. Bischof has worked for the meat producer since July 2018.

Other technology responsibilities will be held by Doug Kulka who’s served as chief information officer since Jan. 2023, according to LinkedIn. Kulka has worked for Tyson since Nov. 2017.

“This dual leadership CIO/CTO model allows for a simultaneous focus on business relationships and operational efficiencies to drive excellence throughout Tyson Foods,” a company spokesperson from Tyson told MEAT+POULTRY. “It will allow Tyson Foods to prioritize system optimization and process improvement while also advancing business innovation and automation.”

A Securities and Exchange Commission filing in January showed that Scott Spradley, the former chief technology and automation officer for Tyson, left the company.

At the time, the company said the information technology team members would assume Spradley’s responsibilities.
