Perhaps he’d had too many Timbits in the past few years. The Wendy’s Co. announced this morning that it appointed veteran fast-food company executive R. Scott Toop as its new senior vice president, general counsel and secretary. Beginning today, Toop will report to President and CEO Emil Brolick.
The burger chain successfully hired Toop away from Tim Hortons Inc., where he served as executive vice president and general counsel since 2009. During his tenure at the iconic Canadian coffee and donut franchise, Toop led the development of corporate and international strategic plans and revamped the legal department to more effectively support the company’s various business units.
