Tyson Foods Inc. of Springdale said Wednesday that it has promoted Flavio Malnarcic to president and general manager of Tyson do Brasil, the meat processor's subsidiary in Brazil.

"Flavio has done an outstanding job leading the finance team in Brazil," Rob Tanksley, senior vice president of Tyson's Latin America business unit, said in a news release. "I'm certain he’ll do a great job continuing to grow the business by making us a stronger player in the poultry industry there." 

Malnarcic joined Tyson do Brasil in 2010 as director of finance and accounting. Before working for Tyson Foods, he worked in accounting and finance with Cargill for 17 years, including six in its U.S. operations and 11 with Cargill do Brasil.

Malnarcic has a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s degree in business administration.

Tyson Foods created Tyson do Brasil when it acquired three companies in southern Brazil, two in the state of Santa Catarina and one in the state of Parana. The company said the plants are at full capacity, processing about 2 million chickens per week.

Tyson do Brasil produces a variety of chicken products, including frozen, fresh and marinated cuts.
