Rego Restaurant Group, the parent of Quiznos and Taco Del Mar, has promoted its chief brand officer to president as the operator looks to potentially acquire new brands, the company announced Monday.

Mark Lohmann joined the Denver-based company early last year.

As part of his new role, Lohmann will continue to lead marketing for Rego’s brands, while adding operations to his duties.

“Mark has been an integral part of Rego’s success over the past two years and, in this new role, will continue to help lead our growth, Rego CEO Tim Casey said in a statement. “Instituting Mark as president will help to further optimize our team so that we are able to best integrate and add new brands to our portfolio, bolstering our shared service model and driving efficiencies.”

Rego Restaurant Group, which is backed by private-equity firm High Bluff Capital Partners, oversees nearly 800 restaurants in 32 countries.

“As Rego eyes continued expansion through strategic acquisitions, I am honored to step into the role of president and work to spearhead this growth and continue driving forward efficiencies across all our brands,” Lohmann said in a statement. “It is a privilege to be a part of a dynamic and ever-growing platform and the team that makes it happen.”
