Hormel Foods has promoted James Snee to lead the US group’s international operations.

In an announcement today (26 September), Hormel said Richard Bross was retiring as president of Hormel Foods International Corp.

Snee’s appointment leaves the company well-placed for a seamless transition as he currently serves as group SVP and SVP of HFIC.

Hormel also announced Ronald Fielding will retire as EVP of corporate strategy, planning and development. He will be replaced by current director of corporate development Fred Halvin.
