Chipotle Names Laurie Schalow Chief Communications Officer


DENVER, Colo. — Chipotle Mexican Grill has named Laurie Schalow as chief Communications officer — a newly created position that will oversee all facets of Chipotle’s internal and external communications functions.

Schalow previously worked at Yum! Brands where she held a variety of positions in communications, most recently serving as vice-president of Public Affairs.
“Laurie is an extremely talented executive and I am confident that her broad expertise will help to strengthen our communications and better integrate all of our internal and external communications functions to amplify our messages,” says Steve Ells, founder, chairman and CEO at Chipotle.

Schalow’s appointment is part of a broader, ongoing effort from Chipotle to strengthen its leadership. The company added four new directors to its board in late 2016 and named its first ever chief Restaurant officer in May 2017.
