Chobani Hires Two Top Executives

Jul 12, 2013

Chobani has hired two top executives to continue the company's growth. Former Kellogg executive David Denholm has been named president and COO, and Peter McGuinness, former president and CEO of DDB Chicago, will be chief marketing and brand officer.

Denholm, who starts July 29, had been president of Kellogg Asia Pacific since September 2008 and was a member of the company's global leadership team. He joined Kellogg in 2003.

McGuinness joins Chobani July 22.

"I am confident their business intelligence, knowledge of the global consumer and vision is exactly what we need as we continue to grow our business," said Hamdi Ulukaya, Chobani founder and CEO.

Chobani exceeded $1 billion in sales in 2012 – a fact we'll point out shortly in our annual Top 100© listing. So return to this website after Aug. 1.
