Yum Brands Appoints New Chief Brand Officers at Pizza Hut and Taco Bell

New CEO David Gibbs is wasting no time making changes at key positions


Yum Brands’ new CEO David Gibbs wasted no time in making a number of management changes at its key restaurant divisions Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.

Among the changes, KFC president Kevin Hochman will add interim president of Pizza Hut to his duties, while George Felix and David Graves will fill the roles of CMO and chief brand officer, respectively. In addition, the company named Nikki Lawson as Taco Bell’s chief brand officer.

Hochman, who reversed the fortunes of KFC as its president and then before that as CMO, will assist the pizza chain’s global CEO Artie Starrs.
