Casual dining chain, Red Robin, has named a new chief operating officer (COO).

The gourmet burger company has appointed Guy Constant, its current chief financial officer, to lead its operations.

He will succeed the company’s current COO Carin Stutz as soon as a new CFO is hired.

Red Robin said it expects to find Constant’s replacement by early 2019.

Constant has previously served as president of Chilli’s International and he has also been a CFO for both Brinker International and Rent-A-Center.

“As we look ahead to what Red Robin needs in operations leadership for the next stage of our business, we look forward to leveraging the considerable skills and experience of Guy Constant,”  said Red Robin CEO Denny Post.

“He is highly strategic and clearly understands the challenges we face, as well as how to capitalize on our considerable opportunities.”

The news comes after Red Robin reported weaker-than-expected second quarter results, citing operational problems.

“Red Robin is committed to recapturing our momentum and to regaining our operational edge in this increasingly complex and competitive environment,” Post added.

“Fortifying our leadership team will help us address current and future challenges, which is key to a financially sustainable future.”
