Now, Tyson Foods did name Kurt Calloway interim CFO.

In the meantime, Calloway did most recently serve as a CFO for Tyson Foods Prepared Foods Division and a person familiar with the matter did tell Yahoo Finance that Calloway was responsible for the company's me and acquisitions as well as corporate development efforts.
