The new CEO most recently served as president of Tyson Foods Inc.’s TSN prepared foods division. “The Express board is confident that Stewart is the right person to reinvigorate performance and build the strongest possible foundation on which Express can succeed,” board chair Mylle Mangum said in a statement.
