Chobani Taps Tim Brown as New President and Chief Operating Officer

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Chobani, LLC announced this week that the company has appointed a new President and Chief Operating Officer; Tim Brown will step into the role and oversee the company’s operations, sales, marketing, legal, and fincance teams, reporting directly to Founder, Owner, CEO, and Chairman Hamdi Ulukaya.

"Tim and I clicked the moment we met," Ulukaya said, in a press release. "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’s appointment comes at a time when the company is looking to further increase its category leadership while staying true to its founding mission—making better food for more people.

Brown brings more than 30 years of food business experience to Chobani. Most recently, he led Nestle Waters North America—the third-largest nonalcoholic beverage company, by volume, in the U.S. Overseeing a portfolio of brands including Perrier, San Pellegrino and Poland Spring, Brown was responsible for $4.3 billion in annual net sales and oversaw 8,500 employees, 29 plants, and operations in more than 140 communities.

Tim Brown, President and Chief Operating Officer"Joining a company like Chobani to partner with someone like Hamdi and this great team is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Brown. “I've been following Chobani for years as they have changed the food landscape in this country. I'm thrilled and honored to be coming aboard at a time of such momentum and incredible potential."

In the past year, Chobani has announced a spate of product and production expansions. In May of 2016, the company announced a planned $100 million investment to its plant in Twin Falls, Idaho—already the world’s largest yogurt manufacturing facility, according to the company—to meet growing demand. Chobani also announced the expansion of its Drink Chobani™ beverage line.

We at Deli Market News congratulate Tim on his new role and wish him the best in his future endeavors.
