US-based restaurant software company Toast has appointed its co-founder and COO Aman Narang as its new CEO.

Narang will replace the current CEO, Chris Comparato, on 1 January 2024.

Comparato said: “Aman is the ideal choice to lead Toast into its next era of growth. Aman knows Toast better than anyone, he knows the restaurant community, he is passionate about our customers and he has the right ‘recipe’ of experience and a growth mindset.

“I have worked side-by-side with Aman since I joined Toast in 2015 and I am delighted to be transitioning the CEO role to him and continuing to support Toast as a board member.”

Comparato has been serving as the company’s CEO since February 2015 and will remain on the company’s board upon Narang’s appointment.

Narang has served as Toast’s co-president since December 2012 and has been the COO since June 2021.
