BurgerFi on Wednesday announced it has appointed Michael Rabinovitch as chief financial officer.

Rabinovitch, who has served as a financial executive for 25 years at a variety of retail and distribution companies, begins work at the fast casual on April 1.

He most recently served as chief accounting officer at Tech Data Corporation and has also worked for Office Depot, Mayors Jewelers and Claire’s Stores.

“As BurgerFi continues to accelerate its growth strategy, Michael’s extensive experience in acquisitions, business processes and managing the strong financial structure and growth of large public companies adds significant value to our organization,” BurgerFi Executive Chairman Ophir Sternberg said in a statement.

BurgerFi went public late last year after being acquired by Opes Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC.

The burger chain, which also recently hired a COO and appointed lifestyle guru Martha Stewart to its board, has said it intends to open up to 35 new restaurants this year and 40 to 45 new units in 2022.
