Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation has decided to shake things up and bring in some new blood, with its recent announcement naming Chaz Wilson as leader of Pilgrim’s USA international sales and logistics team. Wilson, a seasoned international sales operations executive, brings 27 years of industry experience to the table.

Jayson Penn, President, Pilgrim’s USA“We are excited to welcome Chaz Wilson to the Pilgrim’s team,” said Jayson Penn, President of Pilgrim’s USA, in a press release. “He is a well-recognized and respected operational and sales leader who enjoys a proven track record of driving bottom line international sales growth for leading U.S. poultry exporters. As global demand for low-cost protein continues to expand and exports become an increasingly important part of our value creation portfolio, Chaz’s leadership and experience will prove invaluable to Pilgrim’s organic growth strategy.”

Over the course of his career, Wilson successfully led international poultry sales and operations teams for companies like ConAgra, Seaboard, and Pilgrim’s Pride. In his most recent role as Chief Operating Officer for Grove Services Inc., he helped to establish Grove Services as the third largest exporter of U.S. poultry, which drove annual sales volume growth to over ten percent. Wilson earned a bachelor of science degree in biology from Centre College in Danville, KY, and has served on the Board of Directors for the United States Poultry and Egg Export Council (USAPEEC) since 1998, and has acted as Chairman from 2012 through 2013.
