New CFO William Burlingham, a 20-year career veteran, joins the team from Bob Evans Farms Inc., where he led the company’s internal audit efforts, overseeing 562 restaurant units and 4 food-processing facilities. Prior to that, Burlingham held various senior leadership positions at Clark Schaefer Consulting, FirstGroup America, and Lexmark International.
From the Cincinnati-based office, Burlingham leads the finance team in their oversight of franchise units serving more than 600 communities across the United States and Canada.
