Former Wendy’s c-suite exec Leigh Burnside has been named CFO of Little Caesars, the pizza chain said Monday.
Burnside, who served previously as senior vice president, chief accounting officer and CFO-U.S. of The Wendy’s Company and had announced her departure there prior to a corporate restructuring, replaces outgoing CFO Darrell Snygg at Little Caesars, who recently retired after 34 years.
She will work closely with the newly named senior vice president of accounting Allison Bieri, who was previously the chain’s vice president of accounting. The Detroit-based chain also said it plans to add several new leadership roles to support recent growth, both internationally and domestic.
“Leigh is a driven strategic leader and effective collaborator who will make a strong positive impact on our business,” said David Scrivano, president and CEO of Little Caesars, in a statement. “Her extensive experience in the QSR industry, coupled with her expertise in finance and accounting, make her an excellent fit for the role.”
