The announcement:

Chobani, parent company of Bead Foods, has announced the appointment of three new positions to its sales and marketing teams: Julia Clark as Bead Foods’ new National Account Manager – Grocery; Lisa Pejovnik as Assistant Brand Manager – Chobani; and Emily Houlahan APD as Communications Coordinator.

The addition of these three new roles is a significant boost to Bead Foods’ team, and demonstrates the continued growth of the company since its purchase in 2011 by Chobani Inc.

Julia Clark joins from a leading Australian dairy company and is responsible for Bead Foods’ key grocery account relationships.  Julia has worked for a number of multinational FMCG companies in Australia and the UK and has a proven track record, including significantly increasing market share for several household dairy brands.

Lisa Pejovnik also joins from a leading Australian dairy company where she was responsible for marketing several leading dairy brands.  Lisa is responsible for the Chobani brand in Australia, in particular the national launch of locally made Chobani in the latter half of 2012.

Emily Houlahan is a qualified nutritionist and joins from Dairy Australia. Emily is responsible for managing Australian social media engagement and customer inquiries for Chobani and Gippsland Dairy.

Julia reports to Lyn Radford, General Manager of Sales, while both Lisa and Emily report to Damian Young, General Manager of Marketing.

“The addition of these new roles in our sales and marketing teams demonstrates our clear intention to grow the Gippsland Dairy and Chobani brands nationally,” said Peter Meek, Managing Director of Bead Foods.  “I am delighted these three enthusiastic and experienced professionals have joined us, and I am genuinely excited about the depth of both local and international experience they bring to Bead Foods.”
