Texas Roadhouse shook up its C-suite recently by appointing Regina Tobin as chief learning and culture officer and designating Chief Information Officer Herman Mujica as an executive officer.
Tobin—a 30-year veteran of the restaurant industry— has been with the company since January 1996, back when she joined as a managing partner in Louisville. After being named Managing Partner of the Year in 1999, she was promoted to Market Partner for the Southwest Florida region, which she held until her current role as vice president of training. In her new position as chief learning and culture officer, Tobin will be responsible for all training, people development, and culture, which includes diversity and inclusion and the company’s leadership development program.
Mujica, who oversees all technology support and initiatives, has more than 30 years of experience in industry and consulting roles. Before Texas Roadhouse, he held senior management positions at The Home Depot and Arthur Andersen.
The employee agreements will go into effect on June 30 and expire on January 7, 2024. After that initial period, the agreements will automatically renew year by year unless the company or employee decides not to. Both Tobin and Mujica will receive a base salary of $350,000 in 2021. In addition, Tobin will receive a base incentive bonus of $120,000 while Mujica will receive a base incentive bonus of $200,000.
Texas Roadhouse also decided to increase its board of directors from five to six. Jerry Morgan, who was promoted to CEO in the wake of Kent Taylor’s death in March, will fill the additional seat.
