Chipotle Names a New CEO. Here's What to Watch For

Chipotle, the popular fast casual food chain, named a new CEO late yesterday.

Brian Niccol, CEO of Taco Bell, replaces Chipotle founder Steve Ells, who becomes the company’s executive chairman.

Wall Street applauded the news; Chipotle’s slumping stock price shot up by as much as 12% in after-hours trading.
