David V. Singer, CEO of Snyder's-Lance Inc., Charlotte, N.C, will retire from his position following the company's annual stockholders' meeting on May 3. Singer also will not stand for re-election as a director. He has served as a director since 2003 and as CEO since 2005.

The company's board of directors has named Carl E. Lee Jr., who has served as president and COO since December 2010, to succeed Singer as CEO. Lee served as CEO of Snyder's of Hanover Inc. from 2005 to 2010. He will serve in an advisory capacity in support of the leadership transition through February 2014.

“On behalf of the board of directors, I want to thank Dave for his many years of service and leadership to our Company," says board chairman Michael A. Warehime. “The board is confident in Carl's ability and is excited that he will assume the role of president and CEO.”

“Dave has accomplished much in his tenure at Snyder's-Lance, and we appreciate greatly the strong foundation that has been built under his leadership. His dedication and industry experience have been instrumental in the company's growth into the snack industry leader it is today, and we look forward to building on that success," adds Bill J. Prezzano, lead independent director.
