3月30日,麦当劳(McDonald’s)官宣了一条新的人事任命:已聘请德西蕾·罗尔斯-莫里森担任新的法务总顾问兼公司秘书。自2017年以来,她一直在医疗公司波士顿科学(Boston Scientific)担任同一职位。

在《财富》杂志援引的任命消息中,麦当劳的首席执行官克里斯·坎普钦斯基称,这一职位对整个公司“极为重要”。他说:“对麦当劳这样一家规模庞大、业务覆盖地域广阔的公司而言,精通复杂法律知识的专业人士至关重要,而德西蕾将带领我们成熟的法务团队进一步打下扎实的基础。”

罗尔斯-莫里森还是迪克体育用品公司(Dick’s Sporting Goods)的高管,坎普钦斯基说,这段经验将为公司带来“消费市场前景的重要洞见。”

麦当劳在公告中指出,除了监管公司在全球的法务运作外,德西蕾还将“为公司的战略计划提供支持、预测并管控风险,以及提高麦当劳的品牌声誉和商业价值。”

罗尔斯-莫里森在声明中说:“前方的挑战是复杂的,但机遇也会是巨大的。”

罗尔斯-莫里森将于4月26日起正式就职,接任杰里·克鲁勒维奇——后者在去年被诊断出帕金森氏症后便退休了。这则任命消息发布之际,正值该公司的关键职位大换血,大量新员工上任,其中包括全球首席人力资源官、全球多样性、平等和包容性监管官员,以及新设立的首席全球影响力官。

坎普钦斯基的备忘录强调了罗尔斯-莫里森“领导团队提升品牌价值”的责任和对多元化的承诺。她加入麦当劳时,该公司官司缠身,包括对前首席执行官史蒂夫·伊斯特布鲁克的诉讼:公司发现他被指控与麦当劳的三名员工发生性关系、并且“对麦当劳的调查员拒不坦白”之后,正试图解雇他、并不予发放补偿。伊斯特布鲁克的律师称,该诉讼“毫无根据”和“具有误导性”。

该公司还面临几项指控其存在种族歧视的诉讼。麦当劳对此提出了异议,称这些诉讼毫无根据,并希望加以驳回。

McDonald’s has hired Desiree Ralls-Morrison as its new general counsel and corporate secretary, the company announced today. She previously held the same position at medical solutions company Boston Scientific since 2017.

In a message to the company announcing the hire viewed by Fortune, CEO Chris Kempczinski called the role “incredibly important” for the entire system. “Sophisticated legal expertise is critical in an organization of McDonald’s scale and geographies, and Desiree will be leading our well-established legal team to further build on the strong foundation in place,” he wrote.

Ralls-Morrison is also a director at Dick’s Sporting Goods, which Kempczinski said would bring to the company “an important understanding of the consumer landscape.”

In a release, McDonald's said in addition to overseeing the company’s legal operations across the globe, she will “support the company’s strategies, anticipate and manage risk, and advance McDonald’s brand and values.

“The challenges are complex, but the opportunities are significant," Ralls-Morrison said in the statement.

Ralls-Morrison starts on April 26 and replaces Jerry Krulewitch, who retired last year after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s. The announcement comes amid a slew of new hires in key positions at the company, including global chief people officer; global diversity, equity and inclusion officer; and the newly created role of chief global impact officer.

Kempczinski’s memo stressed both Ralls-Morrison’s “values-based leadership” and commitment to diversity. She joins McDonald's as it faces a number of lawsuits, including one it is waging against its former CEO Steve Easterbrook. The company is attempting to claw back his compensation after discovering that he allegedly had sexual relationship with three McDonald’s employees and was “knowingly untruthful with McDonald’s investigators” about it. Easterbrook's lawyers have called the suit "meritless" and "misleading."

The company is also facing several lawsuits that accuse it of racial discrimination. McDonald's has disputed the allegations, calling the suits without merit, and sought to have them dismissed.

Before Boston Scientific, Ralls-Morrison was general counsel at pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim USA and Johnson & Johnson’s consumer group.
