Ben's experience deepening authentic connections with consumers, stakeholders, and communities is what we need at this point in our journey as a business and brand," Ulukaya said in the announcement. "Ben is a proven, people-first leader who believes deeply in the importance of collaboration and community, and we couldn't be happier to bring him onboard to help advance our mission of making good food for all."

I look forward to working with Hamdi, Kevin and the leadership team, ensuring the communications function drives business value by shaping and sharing Chobani's transformative impact and innovation stories while also engaging and motivating our team members," Boyd said in the announcement.

Boyd assumes the role from Nishant Roy who will continue to serve as Chobani's chief impact officer, working to address child hunger in Chobani's communities while also using the power of the La Colombe business to make an even greater difference.
