US-based Teasdale Latin Foods has a new CEO in the shape of former Richelieu Foods chief executive Tim O’Connor.

He replaces Alberto Bandera, who had been Hispanic food producer Teasdale’s CEO since 2012.

Carrollton, Texas-based Teasdale, which is majority-owned by private-equity firm Snow Phipps Group, has also announced it has added former TreeHouse Foods and Tyson Foods executive Chris Sliva to its board of directors.

O’Connor most recently served as CEO of Richelieu Foods, a US manufacturer of retail and private-label frozen and deli pizza. He had previously worked for consumer goods heavyweight Procter & Gamble.

Don Sturdivant, Teasdale’s chairman and Snow Phipps operating partner, said: “Tim is the ideal leader for Teasdale. His extensive food and operational background and strategic execution skills will help Teasdale strengthen operations and capitalise on key growth opportunities. We believe his strong leadership experience will help Teasdale execute its continued growth plan.”
