Lance Tucker is resigning as chief financial officer of Jack in the Box, the San Diego-based company announced Thursday.
Tucker will leave the fast-food chain within the next week. The company plans to search for his successor. In the meantime, senior members of Jack in the Box’s finance department will assume Tucker’s duties on an interim basis.
Dawn Hooper, the company’s controller and a 20-year company veteran, will become Jack in the Box’s principal financial officer on Tucker’s last day. She will work with Sean Bogue, the company’s treasurer.
Tucker has been with Jack in the Box for two years and led a whole-business securitization of the company, a financing mechanism that uses royalties from franchisees and other revenue streams to back bonds.
“While we have only worked together a short time, I appreciate Lance’s leadership and strategic thinking,” Jack in the Box CEO Darin Harris said in a statement. “He has made a positive impact on the business and the executive team here at Jack in the Box.”
