Subway Restaurants has promoted Trevor Haynes to the newly created role of chief business development officer, the sandwich chain announced Monday.
Haynes spent the previous three years as the sandwich-chain’s vice president of operations, responsible for franchisee and field engagement. He will now focus on supporting the brand’s directors as they “build their teams and the business around the globe,” the company said in a statement.
"I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and working with the Regional Directors to create a path for the brand internationally that will provide the best and most comprehensive support system for the people that really make things happen: the Subway Franchisees," Haynes said in the release.
The company credits Haynes’ leadership as a driving force behind the recent “Fresh Forward” restaurant design refresh. The updated look was unveiled in July.
Haynes began his career with Subway in 2006 as a territory manager in Australia. Three years later, he became senior area development manager in the U.K. and then landed at company headquarters in Milford, Conn. in 2014.
"In today's highly competitive marketplace, each team will be able to benefit from the knowledge and experience Trevor will bring to his new role," said Subway CEO Suzanne Greco in a statement. "The 11 years of global experience Trevor brings, and his deep understanding of international markets, will allow him to provide a critical perspective to the Regional Directors and help each identify and overcome the challenges they face."
Subway’s network of restaurants currently exceeds 44,000 locations across 113 countries.
