Red Robin’s human resources chief resigns

Beverly Carmichael had served in role since December 2017

Beverly Carmichael will resign April 5 as Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Inc.’s chief people, culture and resource officer after a little more than a year in the role, the casual-dining company said in federal filings Tuesday.

The Greenwood Village, Colo.-based casual-dining company had named Carmichael to head human resources in December 2017.

Prior to joining Red Robin, Carmichael had served as chief people officer for Lebanon, Tenn.-based Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. She is a past board member of the Women’s Foodservice Forum and the Society for Human Resource Management.

A Red Robin spokesperson had not returned questions by deadline about a timetable on Carmichael’s successor.

For the fourth quarter ended Dec. 30, which included asset impairment and other charges, Red Robin swung to a loss of $10.6 million, or 82 cents a share, from a profit of $8.8 million, or 68 cents a share, in the prior-year period. Revenues in the quarter, which included one less week than the same period last year, fell 10.8%, to $306.8 million from $343.9 million.

As of Dec. 30, Red Robin had 573 restaurants, with 484 company-owned and 89 franchised.
