Yum! Brands appoints Roger Eaton president of KFC, USA

Yum! Brands, Inc. has announced that it has appointed Roger Eaton as president of KFC USA. According to the information provided by the company, he replaces Gregg Dedrick who has decided to leave the company at the end of the year to pursue other business ventures and academic coursework. The company has, it says, chosen to replace Dedrick now rather than wait until the end of the year to ensure there is an orderly transition.

Eaton will be responsible for KFC’s $5.3 billion domestic business, which is predominantly franchised across 5,300 restaurants. For the last five months, Eaton has served as Yum! Brands Chief Operating and Development Officer, responsible for sharing global Operations Best Practices.

David Novak, Chairman and CEO, commented on the changes saying, “I want to thank Gregg Dedrick for his outstanding service to YUM over the last 20 years, and for the significant contributions he has made to our business. He is a great friend, and he will be well-missed by all. At the same time, Roger Eaton is the perfect choice as KFC’s new President. He is one of our very best leaders, with enormous talent, strategic thinking, energy, commitment and a stellar track record of consistent results in one of most developed markets in the world.”

Yum! Brands, Inc., based in Louisville, Kentucky, has more than 35,000 restaurants in over 100 countries and territories. It owns a number of restaurant brands including KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Long John Silver’s. (KB)
