Joining Chobani’s global Executive Leadership Team, effective immediately, Hadley will report to Kevin Burns, Chobani President and Chief Operating Officer.

“Chobani Australia has always held a special place in my heart,” said Ulukaya. “Since entering the market in 2011, the team has accomplished the impossible – we have built an Australian brand based on our Chobani values and we are now widely known for delivering food that is delicious, natural, and nutritious. At the same time, we have created new standards and expectations for what good food can be for Australians. 

“As we thought about the leader we needed, it’s clear Scott is the natural choice to lead the team in this next phase of our journey. He is proven and inspirational. He shares our passion for innovation, positively impacting humanity, and he believes deeply that food can and should be a force for good. We are thrilled to welcome Scott into the Chobani family.”

Hadley added that Chobani is a company that he has long admired for its innovative products, passionate team, and belief that business can be a force for good.

“The Australian team has built an incredible organisation and culture and I’m looking forward to building on these great foundations and continuing to disrupt the industry and drive this business and category forward,” he says.
