Carl Karcher Enterprises Names New CEO: The Anaheim-based restaurant chain hired former Kentucky Fried Chicken executive Donald E. Doyle as its new president and chief executive in a move that marks the beginning of Chairman Carl Karcher's transition to retirement. In addition, a buyout team that involved Karcher has broken off its quest to purchase the company, which operates the Carl's Jr. hamburger chain, and make it private once again. Karcher's brother, Donald, who died of cancer in May, had held the post of president. The company said Carl Karcher will remain as chairman.
