Red Robin Chief People Officer Wayne Davis is leaving the company

Davis’ departure is the latest change to the chain’s C-suite under new CEO G.J. Hart.


Red Robin's recovery gets off to a fast start

Staffing changes and new grills are already paying dividends for the chain, but executives cautioned that a full turnaround will take time.

Sullivan was the longtime top chef at California Pizza Kitchen, where he worked with Red Robin CEO G.J. Hart.

The flat-top grills are expected to improve the chain’s burgers. They’re part of a five-point “north star” developed by new CEO G.J. Hart.

Buchmeier, who has spent a combined 25 years at the chain, is the latest C-suite departure under new CEO G.J. Hart.

The new CEO wants to get the brand back on track by improving its menu and correcting past missteps.

The chain also appointed a new chief legal officer and announced the departures of its CIO and chief concept officer, setting the stage for an almost entirely revamped C-suite under new CEO G.J. Hart.

The inducement grants incentivize Hart to boost the chain’s share price, which has lost more than half of its value this year.

Following a successful $10 meal deal, the chain is queuing up happy hour and lunch specials, even as it works to keep costs down.

The industry veteran will come out of retirement to replace Paul Murphy, who is retiring at the end of the year.
