Denny’s Corporation, one of America's largest full-service family restaurant chains, announced that CFO Mark Wolfinger joined the Board of Directors.
Aside from his role as CFO, Wolfinger currently serves as executive vice president and chief administrative officer. Wolfinger is responsible for the overall financial direction of the company, as well as overseeing the development, information technology, purchasing, and legal functions. Wolfinger joined Denny's in September 2005.
“Mark has proven through his contributions and increasing responsibilities over the past six years to be a significant asset to Denny’s and we look forward to adding his expertise, judgment, and insight to the Board," says Brenda Lauderback, chair of Denny's corporate governance and nominating commitee.
"Among his many meaningful contributions, Mark has led our successful Franchise Growth Initiative (FGI) which has transformed Denny’s business model to a more heavily franchised system, he has strengthened the Company’s capital structure, and most recently he spearheaded our strong development effort that resulted in the opening of more new domestic restaurants in 2010 than in any year in the brand’s 57 year history,” Lauderback says.
