Stewart Glendinning, formerly of Molson Coors Brewing Co., will replace Dennis Leatherby as Tyson Foods' chief financial officer effective Feb. 10, the company said Wednesday.

"Stewart's background in both finance and operations will be an important asset to our team as we continue Tyson Foods' transformation to a modern food company," said Tom Hayes, company president and chief executive officer, in a statement.

Leatherby, who has been with Tyson Foods for 28 years, will train his replacement and stay on with the company until April.

"Tyson Foods is primed to launch its next phase of growth and now is the right time for me to pursue the next chapter in my life," Leatherby said in a news release.
