The long-time franchise veteran will be stepping down from the international brand.
The executive vice president and chief financial officer of Domino’s Pizza, Jeffrey D. Lawrence, will be retiring from the global pizza brand after more than 20 years of service; five of which he served in his current role.
Lawrence has agreed to continue serving as CFO until his successor is identified, and will continue to serve as an advisor to CEO Ritch Allison until the end of 2020.
“Wow. What a ride,” said Lawrence. “To be able to be part of the Domino’s growth story over the past two decades has been a dream come true. Domino’s is about opportunity, and the constant opportunities I’ve had to learn, grow, and lead have been simply amazing. From a lead role in our IPO, to partnering with our U.S. and international franchisees to get to number one, to helping shape our digital transformation over the past decade – I’ve had the chance to work with amazing people to sell more pizza and have more fun.”
Ritch Allison celebrated the hard work Lawrence has put in over his lengthy career with Domino’s Pizza: “Jeff has been a trusted teammate for more than two decades at Domino’s and has been a key contributor to the success of our global brand. As our CFO, he has an outstanding track record of creating strategic value for our great system. Jeff’s career accomplishments speak for themselves. I join the entire Domino’s global community in celebrating his career and wish him all the best.”
