Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group Inc. has created new president positions at each of its three brands, the company said Tuesday.

The Southlake, Texas-based company named Ray Risley president of Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House and Scott C. Smith president of Sullivan’s Steakhouse. A brand president for Del Frisco’s Grille will be named later, the company said.

“Having an individual brand president for each of our three concepts will help us achieve our strategic vision,” said Norman Abdallah, DFRG CEO, in a statement. “We believe that highlighting our three separate and distinguished brands will benefit our overall performance.”
