Boston Market Names Eric Wyatt As Chief Executive Officer
Boston Market has named Eric Wyatt as Chief Executive Officer. He succeeds Frances Allen, Boston Market's CEO since 2018, who is departing the company.
Having served as the company's Chief Operating Officer, Wyatt will oversee a newly created "Office of CEO" that includes Chief Financial Officer Caryn Doyle and Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel Randy Miller. Under Allen's leadership, this C-suite team has been instrumental in implementing a multi-faceted transformation plan designed to ensure long-term sustainability, enhance brand relevance, accelerate innovation, improve guest satisfaction, increase overall profitability and create a clear growth plan to propel the company forward.
"...This company is in a very different place than it was in 2018," said Allen. "Most importantly, there is a robust game plan in place to take the brand forward. The foundation is here. The structure is here. The plan is here. And the people are here."
