Captain D’s adds a new player to its executive team
Fast casual seafood chain Captain D’s has appointed Keith Davis as its new chief financial officer.
In his new position, Davis will look to develop and execute financial strategies for the foodservice enterprise. He will also be in charge of overseeing the financial and information technology departments for the chain.
"We're thrilled to welcome Keith to the Captain D's executive team as our chief financial officer and have no doubt that his impressive financial experience in the food service industry will be a huge asset as we continue our momentum of compounding success," said Phil Greifeld, chief executive officer and president of Captain D's. "Our record-level AUV growth and success over the past several years is a product of the hard work and talent of our exceptional team. Throughout his career, Keith has developed a wealth of business acumen and best-in-class financial capabilities that I know will enhance our business strategies. We are excited to have him join the D's team."
Davis has long been involved in the financial and operational landscape of the foodservice sector, working with establishments like Round Table Pizza, Beverly Enterprises, Landry's Seafood Restaurant and Pizza Hut throughout his career. He leaves behind his most recent position as chief financial officer of Tavistock Restaurants – where he tracked and managed the financial strategies for the company's 130 fast casual and upscale restaurants – to join Captain D’s.
Captain D’s welcomes Davis as it is experiencing one of its most successful years yet – the chain has achieved an all-time system-wide AUV record and recently saw a fourth-quarter system-wide same-store sales increase of 4 percent and a 4.3 percent system-wide same-store sales increase for the entire fiscal year.
The company operates 516 restaurants in 26 states.
