National Council of Chain Restaurants President Jack Whipple will retire from his post at the end of the year. Whipple took the post five years ago after a 25-year career in public-policy positions at McDonald's. "Jack was a tremendous leader during the years he served NCCR, and this is the capstone to a terrific career," said Matthew Shay, president and CEO of NCCR's parent, the National Retail Federation. "He is a pioneer in the public policy arena. Nobody was doing this in the industry when he started at McDonald's."
