WARROAD, Minn. — The Marvin Companies announces the election of a new member to its board of directors, Sally Smith.
As former President and Chief Executive Officer of Minneapolis-based Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc., Sally Smith recently led one of the nation’s largest casual dining restaurant chains, which includes more than 1,260 company-operated and franchised restaurants.
Smith joined Buffalo Wild Wings as chief financial officer in 1994 when it was a fledgling chain of 35 restaurants. Prior to joining Buffalo Wild Wings, Smith sharpened her business acumen with positions at the international accounting and consulting firm KPMG, LLP and during her 11 years at the national franchise company, Dahlberg, Inc. (now Miracle-Ear, Inc.).
“We are very pleased to welcome Sally to The Marvin Companies board of directors,” said Susan Marvin, Chair of the Board of The Marvin Companies. “She brings significant business experience along with an understanding and appreciation for The Marvin Companies’ values.”
Concluding his term as board member is James (Jim) Campbell, retired group executive vice president of Wells Fargo & Company.
“Jim has provided wise counsel and strategic insight to the board for many years,” said Marvin. “He has been generous with his time and spirit and we are very grateful for his leadership, commitment and service. Most notably, Jim was influential in guiding the board’s succession process to name a new CEO, and his contributions to that process were invaluable.”
