Quality Restaurant Group, LLC (QRG) today announced that Matt Slaine has stepped down as chief executive officer of QRG. Matt Zeiger, formerly QRG’s chief financial officer, has succeeded him.
“Given QRG has reached significant scale, it is now time for me to turn the day-to-day responsibilities over to Matt Zeiger, our current chief financial officer. Matt has over 25 years of finance, operations, and leadership experience, including 16 years in various operational and finance leadership roles with YUM Brands before joining QRG. I have no doubt with his experience and the time we have worked together that he will be a great operationally focused leader,” Slaine said.
Slaine added, “Building QRG into the leading franchised restaurant business it is today has been a highlight of my career, and I sincerely thank everyone who has helped to make this happen. While I will remain involved going forward in affiliation with the QRG Board of Directors, I look forward to spending more time with my family as well as pursuing numerous passions – including entrepreneurial business opportunities.”
