Former corporate production manager, Mike Tamimi, has been named the company’s new director of production, responsible for providing leadership in the management of all live production operations. As director of production, Tamimi will manage and administer production divisions and programs, provide consultation and direction necessary to enable production management to meet operational objectives, as well as develop and execute strategic plans and programs in the areas of production.

“Working in various areas of management in Sanderson Farms’ live production division for the past 12 years has been very rewarding,” said Tamimi. “I enjoy producing results for the company, and I understand the needs of our division management as I have walked in their shoes for many years. I hope that understanding creates effective working relationships in my new role that contribute real results and long-term success for Sanderson Farms.”

A graduate of Troy University in Troy, Alabama, Tamimi earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting. He began his career with the company in 2008 as a production manager at the company’s Adel, Georgia production division.
