Carl and Charles George: Fourth-gens at the helm of George's Inc

George's Inc, one of the US's largest privately owned poultry companies, is strengthening family control by promoting fourth-gen brothers to the role of joint chief executive and president.

Carl and Charles George joined the $900-million-a-year (€687 million), Arkansas-based family business in 1997 fresh from school, working their way up to the executive team in 2006.

Although the brothers will share the chief executive role, Carl will focus on the live processing and production departments, while Charles will be responsible for sales accounting, human resources and purchasing, the company said.

Previous chief executive and president Gary George will continue as the company's chairman.
