SPRINGDALE, ARK. — Tyson Foods Inc. added chief technology officer to the title of Doug Kulka in a recent update on the company website. Kulka will now serve as CTO and chief information officer.

Danyel Bischof-Forsyth, who was promoted to the CTO position in February 2023, is no longer with Tyson Foods, a company spokesperson confirmed to MEAT+POULTRY.

With the new position, Kulka will still report to Donnie King, president and chief executive officer of Tyson.

Kulka began working with Tyson in 2017. Prior to that he worked in leadership roles for Hewlett Packard (HP) where he led global regulatory compliance.

Bischof-Forsyth started working for Tyson in July 2018 according to her LinkedIn page. After the departure of Scott Spradley from his role of CTO in January, the meat producer explained why they went with a dual appointment at the time.

“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 said in February. “It will allow Tyson Foods to prioritize system optimization and process improvement while also advancing business innovation and automation.”

This is the second leadership change by Tyson Foods in the last week. Tyson confirmed that Stewart Glendinning, group president of Prepared Foods, would resign from his position in September. He joined fashion apparel retailer Express Inc. as its new CEO and board member, effective Sept. 15.
