Wendy's announces planned succession for Chief People Officer role
Wendy's announced that Chief People Officer Scott Weisberg intends to leave the company once he completes an effective transition process over the next several months. After a successful tenure with Wendy's that started in 2012, Weisberg is expected to transition his responsibilities in the first quarter of 2018 to Coley O'Brien, currently Vice President of Human Resources. Subject to final Board approval, O'Brien is expected to succeed Weisberg in the Chief People Officer role and join the senior leadership team reporting to President and CEO Todd Penegor. O'Brien joined the company in 2007 as National Director of Operations Training, and has been successively promoted through Operations and Human Resources leadership roles over the past 10 years.
