Seaboard Corporation has announced the appointment of Peter Brown as president and CEO of its pork division, Seaboard Foods.
Brown will succeed Darwin ‘Duke’ Sand who will be retiring, effective 1 January 2021.
Prior to joining the company, Brown is said to have held a number of leadership positions in operations and sales during a career in the protein industry.
Most recently, Brown served as chief operating officer (COO) at turkey company Butterball, which is partly owned by Seaboard Corporation. Prior to that, he was president and COO at seafood company High Liner Foods.
“Peter’s broad background in all facets of the protein industry means he has successfully solved some of our industry’s biggest challenges,” said Seaboard Corporation president and CEO, Bob Steer.
“We’re incredibly fortunate to tap into his experience and expertise in utilising Lean manufacturing and management principles to collaboratively drive results.
“Peter has a proven track record of turning strategy into actions and leveraging the skills of existing talent to build high-performing teams.”
Seaboard Corporation appointed Steer as the company’s new CEO in July, following the death of former CEO Steven Bresky.
