Last month, the biggest executive news was that G.J. Hart, formerly CEO of Torchy’s Tacos, would be taking on the role of chief executive at Red Robin. Following in the footsteps of Paul Murphy, who will be retiring on September 5, Hart will become CEO of the casual-dining restaurant chain after announcing his retirement from Torchy’s last year.
The other big news was that Dave & Buster’s named an all-new executive team alongside former Main Event executives following the acquisition of that company. The new C-suite combines the two brand’s leaders for a new executive leadership team.
Other executive announcements include three presidential placements at Slutty Vegan, Bartaco and SSCP. McDonald’s also named a president for international markets.
In other news, Burger King named a chief digital officer, growing taco concept Chaia Tacos appointed a chief operating officer, Smoothie King named a chief development officer, Hooters promoted a chief people officer, and Chili’s named a chief marketing officer.
