MB Interim Leaders Finds Interim Senior Director of Payroll for Private Equity-Backed Restaurant Chain

IRVINE, California, January 9, 2017 — MB Interim Leaders (MBIL) is pleased to announce the placement of the interim Senior Director of Payroll at a private equity-backed restaurant chain.

This interim executive leader search was led by Rebecca Miller, MBIL’s VP of Sales.  Rebecca met with the restaurant chain, who had an immediate need for an interim Senior Director of Payroll due to the previous executive vacating the seat.  Timing was crucial, as payroll needed to be completed for over 200 locations in 48 states prior to the end of the year.  Within one week of receiving the request, the interim leader was hired and placed onsite.  She is currently responsible for managing payroll for over 1,500 exempt and non-exempt employees in 200+ locations.  Due to her success in the interim role, the company decided to transition her to a full-time, permanent employee.

The interim leader has over fifteen years of experience as a payroll specialist and executive.  She has a strong background in mentoring payroll departments, handling exempt and non-exempt employee payrolls, and overseeing large national payroll departments at global companies including Aramark Uniform, Fox Networks, and Ares Capital Management.
