Wright becomes the restaurant chain’s interim CEO.
Ed Rensi has resigned his post as chief executive officer for Famous Dave’s of America. Adam Wright, an independent member of the company’s Board of Directors since 2013, will serve as interim chief executive officer during the search for a permanent CEO.
Rensi joined the Famous Dave's Board in January 2014 and agreed to assume the role of chief executive officer one month later after the unexpected resignation of his predecessor.
Rensi will continue to serve on the company's Board of Directors and will lead its efforts in overseeing the Famous Dave’s international expansion efforts.
