Brechoteau has more than 30 years of experience in operations, IT, training and kitchen automation. During her time at YUM!, she held various positions where her responsibilities included providing technology leadership and strategic direction across all YUM! brands, transitioning 750 restaurants in Mexico from franchise to corporate ownership and more.
