Mama Fu’s Asian House, the Austin-based restaurant concept, is pleased to announce the addition of finance and business management executive Jason Morgan to its Board of Directors.
Morgan will offer industry insights and vision as a new member of the Mama Fu’s board. Morgan has served as the CFO of Texas-based restaurant concept Zoës Kitchen since 2008 and has played a vital role in growing the company from 20 to 139 restaurants.
"Jason brings unparalleled expertise and insight into the restaurant industry to Mama Fu’s," says Randy Murphy, CEO of Mama Fu’s. "With his talent, knowledge, and experience, he is a great addition to Mama Fu’s Board of Directors."
Prior to assuming his role at Zoës Kitchen, Morgan was the chief financial officer of Simplex Diabetic Supply, Inc, a private equity backed healthcare startup. He previously served as the first chief financial officer of Video Gaming Technologies, Inc. Morgan has also held executive positions at Gaylord Entertainment Co. and Harrah's Entertainment including strategic planning, investor relations, and treasury. Morgan received his master's degree in 1995 from the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University and his bachelor's degree in 1991 from Vanderbilt University. Morgan is a certified public accountant.
Mama Fu’s currently has 15 operating locations and over 30 locations in development over the next two years, mostly in the Southwestern U.S. Mama Fu’s popularity has drawn the attention of an international company looking to introduce the concept to the UAE, opening two locations early in 2015. Morgan’s expertise and experience in this field will be instrumental in guiding Mama Fu’s during this growth phase and taking the franchise to the next level.
