The Silver Diner chain has a new president.

Glenn D’Amore was named president last week, taking the role from co-founder Robert Giaimo, who remains CEO.

D’Amore has been with the company for 27 years, working his way up from the position of manager, a job he took fresh out of college. The company said he worked every manager position before becoming an area director, and then chief operation officer.

He helped build the company’s portfolio, which includes the casual-dining Silver Diner brand, as well as Silver, New American Brasserie and Silver Social.

“Glenn has done so much for our multi-unit restaurant group, Silver Brands, and it was important for us to recognize his hard work and dedication,” said Giaimo, in a statement. “This well-deserved promotion not only acknowledges Glenn’s many company achievements, but is also indicative of our company culture and philosophy to retail top talent and promote from within.”

Based in Rockville, Md., Silver Brands has grown to include 24 restaurants, including 22 Silver Diners, serving more than 5 million people annually.
