Burns to lead Juul

| December 12, 2017

Juul Labs has named Kevin Burns, previously president and chief operating officer of Chobani, as its new CEO. Burns replaces Tyler Goldman, who intends to pursue new entrepreneurial opportunities.

“We could not be more pleased to announce Kevin as Juul Labs’ new CEO,” said James Monsees, co-founder and board member. “He was a key contributor to the extraordinary operational and strategic success at Chobani that positioned the company for long-term growth, strong financial fundamentals and continued innovation. We fully expect that he will bring similar success to Juul Labs. As we welcome Kevin, we also want to extend our deepest appreciation to Tyler, who helped us build Juul into the market leader.”

Prior to his role at Chobani, Burns spent more than 12 years as a partner at TPG Capital, one of the world’s largest private equity investment firms focused on leveraged buyouts, growth capital and leveraged recapitalization investments in distressed companies and turnaround situations.

He has a bachelor of science degree in mechanical and metallurgical engineering from the University of Connecticut and a master of business administration degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Burns will be based at Juul Labs’ San Francisco headquarters.
