In 2008, he was nominated into Tyson Foods' leadership programme. This internal two-year programme is designed to develop and grow team members for future responsibility within the company. As part of this programme, Mr Wessels has been assigned to assume the management and pursue growth in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean territories while maintaining his commercial responsibilities in the US and Canada.

"Heath's background and early sales success in an important region of the US market, together with his recent team management experience, place him in a good position to assume the expanded responsibilities for the company," commented Aldo Rossi, general manager, North America.
