We’re happy to share the news that Jill Taylor is officially our Chief Executive Officer. Jill has been our interim CEO since the summer of 2017, and now she is officially the leader of Burgerville.
Jill has been involved with Burgerville for more than two decades as a consultant at The Taylor Group, helping develop hundreds of employees and contributing to our company’s innovation over the years.
Jill’s career began as a pediatric nurse working at Oregon Health & Science University and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, and working as an intensive care nurse at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She earned her bachelor’s of science degree from Oregon Health & Science University School of Nursing and a master’s of community health from Oregon Health & Science University. She also has a professional certificate in songwriting from Berklee College of Music.
Jill told our employees, “I’m looking forward to leading this iconic Northwest institution forward into the future, positioning Burgerville at the forefront of regional restoration and regenerative agriculture. We have the opportunity to transform the business ecosystem in the Pacific Northwest and restore our region to better than we found it. It won’t always be easy, but it will be worth it.”
It will be worth it. Welcome, Jill!
