For the sixth time in less than 90 days, CKE Restaurants and CEO Jason Marker announced new additions to the company’s rapidly evolving leadership team.

Marker, who stepped down from his role as KFC U.S. president in April to take the reins at CKE, says Monday’s latest moves “will ensure that our business’s future growth will be powered by what got CKE here in the first place.”

The parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s named Joanna Shepard chief people officer, Stephen Carvelli chief information officer, and promoted Jim Sullivan to chief development officer.
