Feds charge McDonald’s and its former CEO over his 2019 termination

The SEC said Steve Easterbrook made false statements regarding the nature of his firing and charged McDonald’s over public disclosure violations. Easterbrook was fined $400,000. The burger giant escaped financial penalties due to its cooperation.

Saying the company “cannot stand still” despite recent success, CEO Chris Kempczinski announced broad changes that will require some “difficult discussions and decisions.”

She had been with the chain since 1998. VP of Finance Keith Humpich will take over while the company looks for a permanent replacement.

The outgoing president helped the chain reclaim its identity as well as its status as a premier casual-dining brand.

Cywinski oversaw a strong period at the casual-dining giant since joining in 2017. He’ll be replaced by Tony Marolejo, president of international and global development for Applebee’s parent Dine Brands.

The six-year company veteran becomes the first C-level marketing chief in the burger chain’s history.

Longtime COO Scott Taylor will take his place and Landry will become chairman of the sports bar chain he founded nearly 20 years ago.

The award-winning chef and restaurateur is an outside-the-box thinker and it continues to serve him well.  

The high-tech chicken chain added an experienced leader as it looks to double its footprint next year.
