Jack in the Box Inc. named Tim Mullany to the role of chief financial officer and executive vice president, effective Jan. 18, 2021, the company said Thursday.
He replaces Lance Tucker, who announced his departure from the quick-service chain in July.
Mullany was most recently CFO at the gym chain VASA Fitness, but he has more than 20-years’ experience in the restaurant industry, including serving as CFO of Rave Restaurant Group Inc., where he scaled the Pie Five Pizza brand. Mullany also served as CFO of Restaurants Unlimited Inc., and Consumer Capital Partners, the former Smashburger and Quiznos franchisor and operator, Jack in the Box said.
“We are excited for the addition of Tim to the Jack in the Box team. He has demonstrated strong financial leadership while supporting growing businesses in the restaurant industry,” said Darin Harris, Jack in the Box’s CEO, who joined the company in June. “We are confident in his executive leadership ability to help continue the momentum being experienced at Jack in the Box.”
Jack in the Box operates and franchises more than 2,200 restaurants in 21 states. The company, which last month settled a dispute with franchisees over the brand strategy, is reworking the executive team.
