TGI Fridays Announces Executive Changes

TGI Fridays announced that Nick Shepherd has decided to step down from his role as President and Chief Executive Officer. Shepherd will continue to actively lead the business through mid-October, and will be working closely with Chairman of the Board, John Antioco. The Board has launched a search for the successor, which will be led by Sentinel Capital Partners. Because it is unlikely a new CEO will be in place prior to Shepherd leaving the business, Antioco will serve as interim CEO at that time.
