Domino’s delivers new CEO

13th July 2023 | Jack Oliver

The UK branch of Domino’s Pizza has appointed Andrew Rennie as chief executive officer. He is set to join the group as a director on 1 August before taking on the role of CEO from the 7th.

He has extensive experience with Domino’s global network, having worked as a multi-unit franchisee for a decade.

Rennie worked with Domino’s Pizza Enterprises for over two decades, working in roles such as CEO of France and Belgium between 2006 and 2010, chief financial officer and then CEO of Domino’s Australia and New Zealand businesses from 2010 to 2013.

Between 2014 and 2020, he was CEO of Domino’s European business, which included the master franchise agreements for France, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

While at the Sydney-listed Domino’s Pizza Enterprises, its market capitalisation grew from AU$132million (£69.3m) to AU$5.85 billion (£3.07bn), the group said.

Domino’s added that its continental store count increased threefold during his tenure as CEO of the chain’s European branch.

Elias Diaz Sese, who took over as interim CEO of Domino’s in the UK in October 2022, will step down on 7 August 2023. He will remain a non-executive director, a role he has held since joining the board in 2019.

Andrew Rennie said: “I am delighted and honoured to be taking up the role of CEO of DPG(Domino’s Pizza Group). The Domino’s brand is in my blood and I’ve admired the strong progress the UK and Ireland business has made in recent years.”

Matt Shattock, Domino’s chair, said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Andrew Rennie as our CEO. Andrew understands the power and potential of the Domino’s brand as well as anyone in the business globally. He is an energetic and entrepreneurial  leader with an incredible track record of delivering growth in Domino’s businesses around the world.”
