US-based pizza chain Domino’s Pizza has appointed Tom Curtis as its new executive vice-president (EVP) of Team US.
Curtis will oversee the company’s network of 396 company-owned stores across the US, as well as lead operations innovation and global store training teams.
He will succeed current EVP Stan Gage, who recently became Domino’s franchisee by purchasing 12 restaurants.
Domino’s chief executive officer Ritch Allison said: “Tom has been a key player on our team for many years and I know that Team USA is going to benefit from his many years of operational experience with our brand.
“I’m looking forward to bringing his strong track record on the franchise side of the business to our corporate stores around the country.”
Prior to this role, Curtis worked as vice-president of franchise relations and operations innovation with the pizza chain.
He joined the company in 1987 as a store manager and served in various executive roles with the pizza chain including director of strategic market growth, vice-president of West region and vice-president of US operations support.
Domino’s operates more than 15,100 stores in over 85 markets across the world. The company reported sales of $12.2bn last year including $5.9bn in the US and $6.3bn globally.
