Editor's Note: A previous version of this story has been updated to include that Stephen Joost will remain on Firehouse Subs' board.

Firehouse Subs has promoted Vincent Burchianti to chief financial officer of the 456-unit sandwich chain.

Burchianti, a 10-year veteran of the Jacksonville, Fla.-based Firehouse Subs, previously served as vice president of finance and technology. He succeeds Stephen Joost, who left the CFO position to serve as president of the Jacksonville City Council. Joost remains on the company’s board.

"Vince understands our industry and, more importantly, our brand,” said Robin Sorensen, co-founder of Firehouse Subs, in a statement, “and since day one has embraced and held true the deep rooted core values that have made Firehouse Subs successful over the past 17 years."

Burchianti previously worked at Nathan’s Famous Inc. and Arby’s Inc.
