Shake Shack President and CFO Tara Comonte will be pursuing a career opportunity outside of the restaurant industry come May 10.

Comonte has been with Shake Shack since 2017 and will remain with the company through May 7, helping close out its Q1 earnings and more.

“It has been a huge honor to help lead this incredible brand through such a transformational period of growth,” Comonte said in a press release. “Shake Shack is a very special place, full of passionate, high-performing, talented leaders, each of whom I will sincerely miss. I’m excited to watch their success and growth continue around the world for many years to come and will remain one of their biggest fans. I would like to thank everyone at Shake Shack for the last wonderful four years, a time I will forever treasure. I wish everyone in the company every success.”

A search firm will be hired to aid in the search for a new CFO, and the job’s duties will be split among leaders on the Shake Shack team until a new candidate is selected.

Meanwhile, on May 10, Comonte will become Chief Executive Officer of TMRW Life Sciences, creator of an automated cell management platform for in vitro fertilization. Comonte was a founding member of the company’s board of directors.
