TAMPA — Outback Steakhouse parent Bloomin' Brands has appointed HSN's Mindy Grossman to its board of directors, the Tampa restaurant firm said Monday.
Grossman, CEO of the St. Petersburg retail-TV giant, was named last month by Forbes magazine one of the world's 100 most powerful women, her third time on the list.
Also joining the board is Bain Capital principal David Humphrey, who will replace Bain managing director Phil Loughlin, on the board since 2007.
The restaurant firm, once called OSI Restaurant Partners, is controlled by Bain Capital, the private-equity firm once run by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Grossman and Humphrey will also join the audit committee of the company, which once again became publicly traded last month.
Bloomin' also runs Carrabba's Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar and Roy's.
