US meat processor Tyson Foods has appointed Kevin McNamara, CFO of the Nashville-based managed care group HealthSpring, as an independent director.

McNamara has been in his current position at HealthSpring since April 2005, having previously served as chief financial officer of HCCA International, a healthcare management and recruiting company.

“We believe Kevin is a tremendous addition to our board, especially given his financial background and extensive experience in the health care industry,” said Tyson chairman John Tyson. “I look forward to his participation on the board.”

McNamara’s appointment brings the total number of directors on the Tyson board to 11, and he will be the company’s sixth independent board member. He has also been appointed to serve on the board’s audit committee.
