Chobani Names Golechha To CFO Post


Chobani Inc., maker of America’s No. 1-selling Greek yogurt brand, has named Dipak Golechha as its CFO. Golechha joins Chobani after 18 years at Procter & Gamble where he held a variety of finance, operational and management positions, including CFO of the global snacks division.

He will report directly to Hamdi Ulukaya, Chobani’s founder and CEO, and will oversee Chobani’s financial, accounting and IT functions. He replaces James McConeghy, who stepped down from his role in November.

“Dipak’s vast leadership and management experience, combined with our shared vision for Chobani, will support our continued growth and our future plans for expansion,” said Ulukaya. “Dipak joins a strong leadership team and will play a critical role in ensuring Chobani maintains the financial strength and flexibility it needs to build on our momentum as we prepare for an even stronger year ahead.”

Golechha added: “Chobani is a fast growing, important and highly relevant brand in the world today. I’m very excited to join a world-class team to help take the business to the next level.”

Golechha is the latest of several executive appointments in recent months and joins COO David Denholm and Chief Marketing and Brand Officer Peter McGuinness on the leadership team. Chobani also recently announced some additional key appointments in core areas: Andreas Sokollek, who brings more than 24 years of operations excellence and project management experience, is SVP of supply chain and operations; and Dr. Alejandro Mazzotta is VP of global quality, food safety and regulatory affairs, bringing to the team more than two decades of leadership at global packaged goods companies.
