Born and raised in New Jersey, Dannon executive Jeffrey Rothman first began his career in politics. After graduating from the School of Arts & Sciences at Cornell University in 1994 with a B.A. in Government, he worked in Washington, D.C. for then-Representative Robert Torricelli. But another calling beckoned, and Rothman later found himself at the Anderson School at UCLA, from which he earned an M.B.A in marketing in 2001 and began his career in brand management.
After a three-year stint in brand management at Unilever, Rothman was hired by Dannon to lead the launch Activia Yogurt in 2006. Rothman has since held numerous roles at Groupe Danone (Dannon’s parent company), including international assignments in France and England. Currently Vice President of Marketing & Innovation at Dannon, Rothman is responsible for building a multibillion dollar portfolio of brands, advancing the organization’s marketing capabilities, and leading the company’s innovation program.
