White added: “This executive transition will allow me to focus to an even greater degree on strategic planning and total Taco growth going forward. While we work to strengthen our competitive position around the world and expand our product offerings and markets served, we will continue to nurture the important and abiding relationships we have with our employees, suppliers, and the communities where we work.”

“In promoting Wil to the CEO position at Taco sends a clear message of the full confidence and trust that our board of directors and I have in him. Together with the senior management team, Wil will master the challenging tasks and exciting opportunities that lie ahead of us in the years ahead,” said White.
