Hall had held interim CFO post since January

Dine Brands Global named Vance Chang chief financial officer. Chang will take the position at the parent of Applebee’s and IHOP June 14, 2021—also the day that Allison Hall, interim Dine Brands CFO since January 2021, will begin serving in her newly appointed role as senior vice president, chief accounting officer.

He comes from Exer Urgent Care, where he served in the role of CFO. Before his position there, he worked for Yogaworks, also holding the position of chief financial officer at the yoga studio chain. His professional experiences are diverse, with past roles at Pressed Juicery, Moelis & Company, Oracle and Deloitte & Touche.


“After a rigorous search process, I’m excited to welcome Vance to Dine Brands. He is a high-impact executive who brings a compelling blend of strategic and collaborative leadership abilities,” said Dine Brands CEO John Peyton. “Vance will be an asset to our business as we continue on a recovery trajectory and focus on growth across every facet of our business.”

At the University of Washington, he received his degree in Accounting. He earned his M.B.A from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.

In addition to Vance’s appointment, with her new promotion, Hall becomes SVP, chief accounting officer after thirteen years at Dine Brands. Now a veteran of the restaurant company, she joined as director, assistant controller back in 2007. Later on, Hall was promoted to executive director, and then ultimately vice president.

With Vance and Allison at the helm of our financial organization, I look forward to our continued success together as we evolve our business and accelerate our momentum in support of our restaurants and franchisees around the globe.”
