OAK BROOK — Charles C. Talbot has joined Athletico Physical Therapy as chief financial officer, bringing almost three decades of financial leadership to the company.
Talbot comes to Athletico after more than six years as senior vice president and CFO at Potbelly Sandwich Works, where he was instrumental in establishing that company’s financial standing and building its financial infrastructure. He becomes Athletico’s CFO four months after the acquisition of Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers, which made Athletico one of the largest physical therapy providers in the Midwest.
Athletico has five locations in Metro East and dozens more across Illinois.
“This is an exciting time for Athletico as we move into new markets and offer a wider variety of quality clinical services to a growing number of patients,” said Mark Kaufman, Athletico founder and CEO. “Charlie will be a critically important member of our strong leadership team with his strategic insights, character, and business and operational experience.”
Talbot has almost 30 years experience in finance, working with restaurants, banks and investment companies including Northern Trust Company, Nuveen Investments and YUM! Brands. He has a degree in economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an MBA from the University of Chicago’s Booth Graduate School of Business.
Talbot began at Athletico on April 7.
