Pizza Inn Holdings Inc. has named Jerome L. Trojan III to the newly created position of chief financial officer at the 300-unit company.
He succeeds Nancy Ellefson, who served in the role with the title of vice president of finance.
Trojan most recently was chief financial officer for CLST Holdings of Dallas.
“Jerry is a great addition to our executive team as we embark on an exciting year,” said Charlie Morrison, president and chief executive of The Colony, Texas-based Pizza Inn.
Pizza Inn plans to expand its more urban-oriented Pie Five Pizza Co., which it introduced last summer.
Prior to CLST Holdings, Trojan served as vice president of finance and chief financial officer of Palm Beach Tan and worked in financial positions at Moll Industries Inc. and VLPS Lighting Services International Inc.
“I am honored to join this company and this team that have brought the best of a historic brand and an exciting new fast-casual concept together for an impressive future,” Trojan said in a statement
Pizza Inn owns and operates eight Pizza Inn and Pie Five restaurants and franchises the remainder, which are a variety of buffet and to-go units.
