Shari’s Café & Pies announces the addition of Keith Wall as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Wall joins Shari’s executive leadership team as one of many significant changes occurring at Shari’s. He replaces longtime CFO, Ray Damron, who retired in September.

“Shari’s has been evolving the Shari’s Brand at a rapid pace over the last couple years. We’ve re-imaged a significant number of our locations with contemporary building innovations; we’ve redesigned our menu with additional fresh, local and seasonal menu items, and we’ve combined it all together with new branding elements. Each of these updates has been driven by extensive guest feedback”, said Bruce MacDiarmid, President and CEO. “Keith’s addition to our executive team will help drive our restaurant group to the next level with his tenured restaurant financial background.”

Mr. Wall brings a wealth of financial expertise to Shari’s. He has extensive experience in the restaurant and retail sectors as a senior financial executive – most recently with Ovation Brands. Mr. Wall will oversee all financial aspects of Shari’s and serve as a senior member of the executive team responsible for driving growth and profits.
