I did a search of the management turnover since the current CEO started in early 2002...
4 CFO's 3 head of marketing for IHOP 3 head of IT 3 head of HR 3 or 4 heads of the IHOP business unit (since the acquisition of Applebee's in 2007) 3 heads of R&D of the IHOP business unit 2 heads of of Franchising 3 Chief Legal Officers
I can't tell what has happened at Applebee's since the acquisition (no press releases at least).
Is this a normal level of turnover for a senior team? It seems very excessive.
