Bravo Brio CFO resigns

James O’Connor to “take a similar role with a private company”

Bravo Brio Restaurant Group Inc. CFO James O’Connor has resigned “to accept a similar role at a private company,” the operator said on Tuesday.

O’Connor’s resignation is effective Sept. 15.

Bravo Brio CEO Brian O’Malley said a search for O’Connor’s replacement has begun.

“We have a great finance team that will support us on an interim basis,” O’Malley said.

Bravo Brio has 50 Bravo Cucina Italiana locations and 63 Brio Tuscan Grille units. The casual-dining chains have struggled in recent years with weak same-store sales, including a 1-percent combined decline in the second quarter ended June 25.

Bravo Brio’s stock fell about 3 percent in Tuesday morning trading. The company’s stock is down more than 26 percent for the year, and is trading below $3 per share.
