Tim Tassopoulos is the president and chief operating officer of Chick-fil-A, Inc. He began his career as a restaurant team member nearly 40 years ago. Shortly after joining the home office staff as a business consultant in the early 1980s, he took on responsibilities to help solve one of the company’s greatest business challenges – evolving Chick-fil-A restaurants from a mall concept into free-standing locations. Since that time, Tassopoulos has served as director of field operations, vice president of operations, senior vice president of operations, and most recently, executive vice president of operations. In 2016, Tassopoulos was appointed president, where he leads the company’s senior leadership team, the Executive Committee.
Tassopoulos graduated valedictorian from Oglethorpe University with a bachelor’s degree in history and political science. Tassopoulos received his Master of Business Administration from Georgetown University, where he was recognized with the Graduate School Service Award.
Passionate about youth and education, Tassopoulos is a member of several guiding academic and youth development boards, including: the board of trustees of Oglethorpe University, the board of advisors at Georgetown University McDonough School of Business, the board of trustees for Hellenic College and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, and the advisory board of the Atlanta Area Council for the Boy Scouts of America.
Tassopoulos is a native of Atlanta. He is married to Maria and has two sons.
