Event Details

Kyle O'Brien leads the global sales initiatives for Chobani Global Holdings, Inc. and is involved in all core aspects of business development for the company and its family of brands: Chobani Greek Yogurt; America's #1 selling yogurt brand, -Chobani Champions and Gippsland Dairy. With more than 20 years of food-service, retail, business development and operations experience, Kyle has been instrumental in spearheading Chobani's launch. Since joining Chobani in 2006, he has helped grow the company from a Central New York start up to a $1 billion dollar global enterprise. His vision to make Chobani available to mass consumers led him to successfully secure national and global distribution in several key markets - a vision that leads Chobani's continued success today. Based in Charlotte, N.C., Kyle has built Chobani's sales force from one (himself) to more than 45 employees strong. However, Kyle's impact extends well beyond the sales department. His energy is tangible throughout the organization as his passion and ability to motivate others has been instrumental in defining and fostering Chobani's positive, tight- knit, familial culture, which drives passion throughout Chobani's 2,000+ person global workforce. Kyle believes that in order to move forward, you have to give back. He is involved in service projects for his local community and church. He also works closely with Chobani's charitable arm, the Shepherd's Gift Foundation, which gives 10 percent of the company's post- tax profits to charities worldwide. In his free time, Kyle enjoys the three "R's:" reading, riding his road bike, and the Red Sox. He is an avid traveler and enjoys spending time with his family.
