Tilted Kilt has recently hired Eddie Goitia as the new chief financial officer for the company. Goitia’s most recent experience includes a 19-year run at Monti’s La Casa Vieja Steakhouse in Tempe, Ariz., serving most of his time as CEO and managing partner. At Tilted Kilt, Goitia will be responsible for developing and executing a strategic financial plan to assist in the expansion of the Tilted Kilt brand. As of now, Tilted Kilt has more than 70 locations in the United States and Canada.
"This is truly an incredible opportunity to work with a dynamic company with phenomenal growth,” Goitia says. “I look forward to working with the team at the Titled Kilt organization as we continue its expansive success."
During his nearly two decades at Monti’s, Goitia helped the restaurant’s sales grow exponentially, specifically in the catering and banquet arenas, by utilizing the expansive space the restaurant boasts. His creativity, determination, and success allowed him the opportunity to be scouted by Tilted Kilt.
Prior to joining Monti’s, Goitia served as Director of International Sales for Windsor Industries based in Colorado. He began his working career as a member of the staff of Senator John McCain.
Goitia received a BS in Marketing from Arizona State University and an MBA from Thunderbird School of Global Management. He has served his community as a member of the Tempe Diablos and is currently on the Board of Directors for the group.
He and his wife Stacey, an author, reside in Tempe. Their son Brice attends Barrett Honors College at ASU and their daughter Elise attends Seton Catholic Preparatory High School.
