Rizal Hamdallah

Head of Tyson Innovation Lab at Tyson Foods


Rizal Hamdallah has travelled far and wide before ‘landing’ in Chicago as Head of Tyson Innovation Lab.

Tyson Innovation Lab is focused on rethinking the future of food, based on the belief of how much good food can do.

Born and raised in Indonesia, Rizal has travelled to more than 40 countries and lived in a dozen of them before deciding to call Chicago home. “I consider myself a citizen of the world,” says Hamdallah, “with all of the privilege and responsibility inherent in this distinction.” His curiosity of his environments, cultures and the world at large has led to his lifelong pursuit of learning. Rizal has examined multiple dimensions of complex problems that have led to the development of creative solutions.

Rizal’s professional experience has involved leading global brand, corporate strategy and innovation within corporations such as Unilever, Nestle, Abbott, and SC Johnson. To indulge his entrepreneurial side, Rizal is also the Founder of GetBetty, Inc., a Chicago-based start-up company that focuses on providing on-demand beauty service.
