Lexington, Ky. — Fazoli's has made three new appointments within its corporate finance department, including the hiring of David Hasler as chief financial officer. Hasler spent the past 10 years in finance roles with Walmart, most recently as senior director of global treasury.
Additional executive announcements in the finance department include:
• Tracy Haskins, CPA, has been promoted to vice president of finance and treasury. A 20-year Fazoli's veteran, Haskins has been an instrumental part of financial transactions and capital restructuring events throughout her career with the company.

"Tracy and Spencer are company veterans who have played an integral part in our success, while David brings a wealth of financial experience and expertise to the CFO role. We are in the midst of capitalizing on incredible franchise growth and 15 consecutive quarters of positive same-store sales, and I can't think of better leaders to be at the financial helm during this exciting time."
