“The board and I have been incredibly impressed with Bill’s leadership, knowledge, and skill related to the Four Corners transaction,” says Darden CEO Gene Lee. “We have also been impressed with his vision and capability, which gives us confidence he will be able to lead and transform Four Corners into a leading growth company.”
