Join the Wharton Club for an Exclusive, Small Group lunch with Kevin Hochman, W’95, for the next in the series of Wharton Boardroom Lunches for Presidents and CEOs.
The WCDFW hosts a series of exclusive lunches, each one focused on a very specific professional function. This is a great way to not only network, but to develop more connected relationships with Wharton peers.
These micro-events will be limited to 15 alumni within that functional area. Each small lunch will also be sponsored by a company and held in its executive boardroom where the sponsor will share a short overview of the company and topics relevant to the C-Suite. The purpose of the micro-lunches is to provide an intimate setting in which our alumni can meet and engage their peer group in a protected, informative and effective way.
This event is hosted by Kevin Hochman, W’95, Chief Executive Officer of Brinker International. Kevin serves as Chief Executive Officer and President of Brinker International, Inc., one of the world’s leading casual dining companies and home of Chili’s® Grill & Bar, Maggiano’s Little Italy® and two virtual brands: It’s Just Wings® and Maggiano’s Italian Classics™. He is also President of Chili’s and a member of Brinker’s Board of Directors.
Kevin has more than 25 years of experience working in leading global companies. Prior to joining Brinker in 2022, he held multiple leadership positions at Yum! Brands from 2014 to 2022 most recently serving as U.S. KFC President for more than five years while concurrently leading the Pizza Hut Brand as President from 2020 to 2022.
Kevin has received several awards in recognition of his brand building leadership and innovative thinking, including being named to Nation’s Restaurant News Power List and PR Week’s Power List for several years. He was also named the Forbes No. 2 most influential CMO in the world when he was the KFC Chief Marketing Officer
