Paul Brown became the CEO of Arby's in 2013. Coming from Hilton Worldwide, his career move may have come as a surprise to some, but Brown was a believer in the brand. In just a few years, Brown brought Arby's to record sales. He'd go on to co-found Inspire Brands, which owns Arby's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Rusty Taco, and Sonic. Through the acquisitions and the turnarounds, Brown has maintained one thing across the brands: authenticity.
