KFC UK&I names Meghan Farren as general manager
She returns to the company where was previously CMO.
KFC UK & Ireland announced that Meghan Farren will be returning to the fast food brand as its general manager this autumn.
In her 10 years at KFC, Farren is credited for the brand’s “shift to a more acute focus on sustainability and social purpose, delivered the highest brand health scores in UK & Ireland’s history and step changed the customer experience through her partnership with operations and finance.”
Farren left her chief marketing officer role in KFC UK & Ireland in 2021 for Asda, where she held the role of chief customer officer.
“Meg’s impact on the KFC brand extends far beyond her ten-year career with our UKI business. From Innovation Director in 2011 to her more recent role as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) from 2015 to 2021, Meg became well renowned for her bold and brave creative leadership, a champion for our unique culture and her people first approach,” KFC Global CEO Sabir Sami said.
Neil Piper, interim general manager, added: “I couldn't be more excited to welcome Meg back to Team KFC, she is a phenomenal leader, someone who understands and cares deeply about our brand, what it takes to win, and epitomizes our culture.”
