Chobani named Tim Brown president and COO, overseeing the yogurt-maker’s operations, sales, marketing, legal and finance teams as the company increases its category leadership and continues to make better food for more people. Brown reports to Hamdi Ulukaya, founder, owner, CEO and chairman.
"Tim and I clicked the moment we met," Ulukaya said. "He's an amazing leader with views and values I really respect and believe in. With his deep experience in consistently delivering quality growth, he's the perfect person to partner with me in continuing to lead the new wave of better food for more people. Chobani's in a very strong position with greater potential than ever before and now with Tim joining we'll grab it."
Brown has more than 30 years in the food business, most recently with Nestle Waters North America.
Chobani also has announced several product and production expansions in the last year, including a $100 million investment in its Twin Falls, Idaho plant and introducing both Chobani Flip and Drink Chobani.
