Conagra Brands Appoints Noelle O'Mara As Executive Vice President

Conagra Brands has appointed Noelle O'Mara as its executive vice president and president of new platforms and acquisitions, effective 6 May 2024.

In the new role, O'Mara will be responsible for identifying and scaling new organic growth platforms and acquisitions for Conagra Brands.

It will involve strategy, product innovation, commercialisation, synergy capture, and in-market execution.

O'Mara brings more than 20 years of experience in the CPG industry to the role, with a proven track record of growing businesses, building capabilities, and creating high-performing teams, Conagra Brands said.


Most recently, she served as group president at Tyson Foods, and was responsible for its $10-billion prepared foods business unit, including manufacturing facilities and over 19,000 employees.

In this role, she helped drive growth and spearheaded enterprise innovation and brand building. She led marketing communication and design, insights and analytics, innovation, culinary, and research and development, Conagra noted.

Before joining Tyson Foods, she served in senior-level general manager positions at Kraft Foods.

O'Mara is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Business.
