Jack in the Box has promoted Carol DiRaimo to chief investor relations and corporate communications officer. DiRaimo has served as vice president of IR and corporate communications since joining the company in 2008.
Jack in the Box won three awards at the recent IR Magazine Awards – US, taking home trophies for best overall investor relations (mid-cap) and best in sector: consumer discretionary, while DiRaimo shared the best investor relations officer (small & mid-cap) award with Julie Tracy of Wright Medical Group.
During the research for the US awards, one analyst praised DiRaimo for being ‘as good as a CFO’. When asked for her philosophy on IR and how she works with the C-suite, DiRaimo said: ‘I think part of it is my financial background, wanting to be a surrogate for the CFO, so that the CEO and CFO can focus on running the business.’
Prior to joining Jack in the Box, DiRaimo was vice president of investor relations for Applebee’s International. During her 14-year tenure there, she served in a variety of roles, including financial planning and reporting, treasury and corporate analysis.
Jerry Rebel, executive vice president and CFO at Jack in the Box, says: ‘Carol is highly respected by analysts, investors and her peers in the investor relations community, as evidenced by the numerous awards she has received over her career.’
