The leaders in our industry wear many different hats. One of those leaders is making room on the shelf for another hat, as Conagra Brands has tapped a new Chief. The specialty brand recently appointed Chaly Jo Moyen as Chief Strategy Officer and President, Foodservice & International, effective Monday, April 12.
"I'm very pleased to be joining Conagra Brands, one of the most dynamic and innovative companies in the food industry," said Moyen. "I am eager to bring my understanding of consumer and customer experience, data, and technology to the new role to build upon Conagra's success and drive sustainable growth."
In the newly created role of Chief Strategy Officer, Moyen will play a crucial role in the creation, execution, and sustainability of the organization's strategic initiatives, according to a company release. Moyen will also oversee the company's international business segment and bring Conagra's brands to consumers outside the U.S., in addition to leading the foodservice division and distributing its products to restaurants and retailers.
Prior to joining the leadership team at Conagra, Moyen spent more than 15 years with the Coco-Cola Company. She most recently served as Senior Vice President of Strategy, Decision Science, and Insights for Coca-Cola North America, where she led enterprise business strategy development and the advancement of data and analytics across all North American business units. Moyen also held several other leadership positions during her time at Coca-Cola, including the role of Vice President, Business Development for USA Operations; Vice President, Business Development for North America Still Brands; and Vice President, Global Marketing and Innovation in the Foodservice division. Before taking on these roles, Moyen worked in brand management for the Procter & Gamble Company in Europe.
"Chaly's expertise in strategy development, brand marketing, and customer leadership makes her the ideal fit to help Conagra integrate data-driven solutions into our business operations," said Sean Connolly, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Her addition to our team will strengthen our efforts to deliver a modern brand-building approach and accelerate innovation across our portfolio."
Moyen has a Master of Science degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Georgia Honors Program.
