McDonald’s announced Monday that former General Mills executive Tiffanie Boyd will become its new U.S. chief people officer, three months after the previous human resources leader left the brand.
Boyd, whose tenure will start January 4, is coming off a 23-year career at General Mills where she recently served as vice president of human resources for North America Retail. At the company, she served in human resources roles across supply chain, food service, and retail business units in the U.S. and Canada.
“I’m proud to join a company with such a powerful brand and broad presence across our country. I look forward to working with franchisees to bring the McDonald’s values to life through our people and their employee experience, as well as the communities in which we operate,” Boyd said in a statement. “My goal is to ensure that McDonald’s is a place where people love the work they do, have opportunities to grow, and can make a meaningful contribution to society. As I step into my role, my first priority will be to spend time with employees, managers, crew, owner/operators and other partners who bring the iconic McDonald’s brand to life.”
