Yum! Brands CEO Required to Fly Via Private Jet for Security Reasons

In its most recent proxy filing, Yum! Brands — which owns KFC — reported that its CEO David Novak is required by an “executive security program” to use the company’s private jet for all business and personal travel.

Said travel cost the company $72,493 in 2003 and $67,581 in 2004.

Novak has had a number of confrontations with animal rights extremists, including a German incident in which an animal rights activist threw fake blood on Novak.
