Starboard hires former Olive Garden exec

  • Starboard Value hires the former president of Olive Garden, Bradley Blum, as an adviser in a move clearly aimed at Darden Restaurants (DRI +2.8%).
  • The hedge fund owns 5.5% of Darden and has been pressing the company hard for changes.
  • It seems a decent bet that Blum will end up being nominated by Starboard for the Darden board.
  • SEC Form 13D

    Wonder why Blum "left" Olive Garden.
