Ruby Tuesday Inc. has named Michael Moore as its chief financial officer, the company said Thursday.
Moore will assume his new role on June 5. He replaces Marguerite Duffy, who said in January that she would retire after serving in the position since 2001.
In a statement, Ruby Tuesday chief executive Sandy Beall described Duffy as “an invaluable partner and asset to Ruby Tuesday.”
Moore most recently served as executive vice president and chief financial officer of Pamida Stores and interim chief financial officer of Kellwood Inc., an affiliated portfolio company of Sun Capital Partners. Prior to that, he was executive vice president and chief financial officer of Advanced Auto Parts.
In January, Maryville, Tenn.-based Ruby Tuesday reported a $2 million net loss for the second quarter, but recently said it would buy the fast-casual Lime Fresh Mexican Grill chain for $24 million.
The Ruby Tuesday casual-dining chain has 740 company-operated restaurants and 85 franchised units around the world.
