Domino’s Pizza Group Plc (UK) has confirmed its new chief executive officer is Andrew Rennie. He joins as director of DPG from 1 August 2023, assuming the position of CEO from 7 August.
Interim CEO since October 2022, Elias Diaz Sese, steps down, while remaining a non-executive director of DPG – a role he has held since joining the board in 2019.
Rennie spent over two decades with Sydney-listed Domino’s Pizza Enterprises (DPE); as CEO of France and Belgium from 2008 to 2010; COO and then CEO of the Australia and New Zealand business from 2010 to 2013; and CEO of its European business from 2014 to 2020.
He is also a non-executive director of AIM-listed Domino’s Pizza Poland plc, and chair of The Cheesecake Shop, a 238-store business in Australia and NZ.
Matt Shattock, chairman, said: “I am delighted to welcome Andrew Rennie as our CEO. He 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. All of us on the board believe that working with our brilliant colleagues and world-class franchisees, he is just the right person to take the business to the next level.
“I’d like to thank Elias for his extraordinary commitment over the past year. His drive and passion for the business and its people have ensured that Domino’s has accelerated the implementation of our strategy and created a stronger platform upon which to drive our growth. I am very grateful he will remain on the board in a non-executive capacity.”
Rennie said: “I am honoured to be taking up the role of CEO of DPG. 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. Working with the team at DPG and the world-class franchisees here, I know we can take the business to new heights and can’t wait to get started.”
