Hwang was appointed as CEO of Eland Eats, which operates several well-known restaurants brands such as ASHLEY and Nature Kitchen. Born in 1982, he is also the youngest CEO in his industry.
Even amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Hwang initiated a home meal replacement (HMR) delivery service and launched an upgraded ASHLEY QUEENS, earning recognition for his innovative project management.
Eland Group has found success with appointing young CEOs to its affiliates in recent years. In 2019, Choi Won-sik was appointed as CEO of Eland World at age 40, and Yoon Sung-dae became Eland Park CEO at age 38.
