OAK BROOK, Ill. — Jeff Stratton, currently global chief restaurant officer for McDonald’s Corp., has been named president of McDonald’s USA, effective Dec. 1. He succeeds Jan Fields, who is leaving the company after more than 35 years.

Stratton began his career at McDonald’s more than 40 years ago, beginning with his start as a crew member in Detroit. He held numerous US field operations positions before becoming West Division president in 2001. Shortly thereafter, he was promoted to chief restaurant officer for McDonald’s USA, a role he held until joining the global team in 2005.

“Jeff’s roots in restaurant operations, his strong leadership and his innovative actions driving our Plan to Win framework make him the right choice to lead the US business,” said Tim Fenton, chief operating officer. “Don Thompson and I are confident in Jeff’s deep experience and his dedication to finding solutions that are right for our customers and shareholders.”
