Logan’s Roadhouse has promoted its chief operations officer to president.

Tim Kaliher, who previously worked as chief operating officer of Black Bear Diners Inc. and O’Charley’s, assumes the role just days after 204-unit Logan’s Roadhouse was acquired by CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries, owner of Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom.

“Tim has continued to be a critical component of our team and brings more than 20 years of experience to his new role,” CraftWorks Holdings CEO Hazem Ouf said in a statement. “Strong leadership is critical to Logan’s Roadhouse as it becomes further integrated with the CraftWorks brand, and we are pleased to have a proven leader like Tim driving the brand forward.”

Logan’s Roadhouse filed for bankruptcy protection in 2016 and emerged the following year.

CraftWorks, which is owned by private-equity firm Centerbridge Partners, operates a large number of concepts, including Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant and Big River Grille & Brewing Works, among others.
