Carrols Restaurant Group Inc. has appointed Anthony Hull as chief financial officer, effective Jan. 2, the company announced Monday.
The Syracuse, N.Y.-based franchisee of Burger King and Popeyes restaurants said Hull will succeed the late CFO Paul Flanders, who died in September.
Hull most recently was a senior adviser on corporate strategy and capital markets projects at Realogy Holdings Corp. and previously served as the company’s executive vice president, CFO and treasurer from 2006 to 2018.
“Tony is a fantastic addition to the Carrols executive team and we look forward to benefiting from his well-established credentials and experience,” said Daniel Accordino, Carrols’ chairman and CEO, in a statement. “Throughout his extensive career, he has demonstrated effective leadership across a number of different industries while making impressive contributions along the way.”
Prior to Realogy, Hull held finance positions at DreamWorks LLC, King World Productions Inc., Paramount Communications Inc. and Morgan Stanley & Co. Hull currently sits on the board of Landis Technologies, a start-up venture that provides assistance and guidance to families in attaining home ownership.
Tim LaLonde rejoined Carrols as interim CFO in September and will continue in that role until Jan. 2, Accordino said.
