Over at FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty) Brands, three new faces are making their way on the scene in a move from the restaurant operator to boost its Board of Directors. Recently, the company appointed Peter R. Feinstein, Matthew H. Green, and John C. Metz to its board, increasing its size to 12.
Both Feinstein and Green will serve as independent directors in addition to being added to the Audit Committee of the Board, a release stated.
Feinstein is an experienced operator of restaurant and entertainment properties, including SHAC, Fatburger franchises, Sugar Factory, El Dorado Cantina, and Country Star Restaurants. Additionally, he is a retired certified public accountant, having served in senior management and audit roles.
Bringing over 30 years of finance experience as a merchant banker to the board, Green is based in London and has focused primarily on the real estate, infrastructure, and energy sectors for clients, including private equity firms, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and family offices.
Serving as a Director, Metz has a wealth of restaurant experience. He currently owns and operates approximately 70 franchised restaurants, including Hurricane Dockside Grill restaurants franchised by the company, as well as Denny’s and Wahoo Seafood Grill restaurants.
“I’m pleased to further bolster the size and experience of the board with the additions of Peter, Matthew, and John,” said Andy Wiederhorn, Chairman of FAT Brands. “Peter and John have great insights as current franchisees within the FAT Brands system along with their other restaurant brand experiences, and Matthew’s financial experience will also prove to be beneficial as we continue to grow and scale.”
Best wishes to these three leaders as they take on these roles!
