Jack in the Box on Tuesday named Lance Tucker its new CFO.
Tucker, who had been Papa John’s CFO, replaces Jerry Rebel, who in April said he plans to retire after more than 12 years overseeing finance at the San Diego-based burger chain. Rebel plans to work with Tucker to “help assure a smooth transition.”
Papa John’s in a release said that Tucker is departing the company “effective March 2” and that the company “will immediately commence a search” for his successor.
Tucker’s departure follows the promotion of Papa John’s President Steve Ritchie to CEO to succeed founder John Schnatter, who stepped down last month and will be the company’s executive chairman.
Tucker had been CFO and treasurer at Papa John’s since 2011 and was also given the title of chief administrative officer in 2012. He first joined Papa John’s in 2009.
“Lance brings a wealth of restaurant industry experience to our organization,” Jack in the Box CEO Lenny Comma said in a statement.
