After eight years as Domino’s president and CEO where he oversaw massive sales growth that brought the Michigan-based global pizza giant over the $10 billion mark in annual revenue, Patrick Doyle announced he is leaving the company June 30.
Richard Allison, 50, the company’s president of international, was appointed CEO by the board to succeed Doyle; and Russell Weiner, 49, president of Domino’s USA, was promoted to the newly created role of COO and president of the Americas. Both effective July 1, 2018.
The company’s Chairman of the Board David Brandon said that under Doyle’s leadership, the brand opened more than 5,500 stores, launched in more than a dozen new countries, and Domino’s became one of the top-performing stocks of the decade. He also developed a strong leadership team, he added.
Allison joined Domino’s in March 2011 as executive vice president of international, joining the brand from Bain & Company, Inc., where he was partner and co-leader of Bain’s restaurant practice.
