Chipotle founding CEO Steve Ells announced recently that he is stepping down as CEO, saying, “It is clear that we need to move faster to make improvements.”  Ells is known for his abilities as the culinary standard bearer of the company but has admitted to lacking abilities in operations/customer service.  He will occupy the role of Executive Chairman once the CEO’s position has been filled.  Thus, we offer our kudos to Mr. Ells for making the difficult decision to step down in the interest of allowing the company to gain better traction in its operations.
