Interview with newly appointed Chobani President, Peter McGuinnes
In addition to his current responsibilities overseeing Chobani's Demand function, McGuinness will also oversee Chobani's supply chain, manufacturing, sustainability, and research and development functions. The alignment of these functions comes at a critical time in Chobani's growth and expansion. The company is continuing its efforts to break down silos and shift towards a nimbler, team-centric way of organizing – a model that was tested and proven through the combination of the company's sales, marketing and new product development functions under him in 2017.
This collaborative, agile approach is paying off – to date, Chobani is the only major US yogurt brand to grow in dollar sales and market share in 2019.
