McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders Managing Director Mark McConnell and Talent Acquisition + Operations Associate Lauren Ayala have successfully placed an interim human resources leader for a restaurant chain in Southern California. 

The restaurant chain required an experienced human resources leader to focus on urgent projects such as revamping talent acquisition, organizational design, and leadership development. The company needed someone who understood the unique challenges they face in the restaurant industry, including a shortage of talent and the need to leverage training resources to support leaders in the field.

The placed candidate brought over 20 years of hands-on human resources leadership and project execution, as well as foundational experience from the industry.
