TreeHouse Foods, Inc. Announces Strategic Management Changes

OAK BROOK, Ill., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE:THS) announced today that Christopher D. Sliva, currently Senior Vice President of TreeHouse Foods and Chief Operating Officer of its operating unit Bay Valley Foods, has been promoted to Executive Vice President of TreeHouse Foods and President of Bay Valley Foods.   The Company also announced that Harry J. Walsh has been appointed to a newly created role of Executive Vice President, Acquisitions Integration for TreeHouse Foods.  Mr. Walsh most recently served as Executive Vice President of TreeHouse Foods and President of Bay Valley Foods.  Both Mr. Sliva and Mr. Walsh will report to Sam K. Reed, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

 "Both Chris and Harry are key leaders of our TreeHouse organization.  As we enter the next phase of our growth and development, they will be integral to both our organic and acquisition-driven growth strategy," said Mr. Reed. 

"We are excited to have an executive of Chris' caliber and experience leading the operations of the organization.   In the short time that Chris has been with us, he has established himself as a strong operational leader at Bay Valley Foods and has gained the confidence and respect of our entire company," Mr. Reed continued. 

"Since 2008, Harry has been instrumental in driving substantial growth in both revenue and profitability for Bay Valley Foods," Mr. Reed said. "Under his leadership, we have made a number of acquisitions that have greatly expanded the scope of the Company, and we believe he is ideally suited to continue broadening TreeHouse into new categories and markets.  Harry will continue to work out of Oak Brook, but will serve as the Company's on-site leader for newly acquired companies."
