The Marvin Companies has announced 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 led a national casual dining restaurant chain, 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. With her financial and leadership skills, and a healthy dose of tenacity, Smith worked to establish a sound infrastructure and build the team that helped the company grow from a regional chain to a national and growing international brand.
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 pleased to welcome Sally to The Marvin Companies board of directors,” says Susan Marvin, chair of the board of The Marvin Companies. “She brings 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 & Co.
“Jim has provided counsel and insight to the board for many years,” says Marvin. “He has been generous with his time and spirit and we are 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.”
