Domino’s Pizza has promoted former executive vice president of supply chain, Stu Levy, to chief financial officer after former CFO Jeff Lawrence announced his retirement last month. Levy will report to CEO Ritch Allison and will make the transition to his new position on Aug. 20. The Ann Arbor, Mich.-based pizza chain appointed Cindy Headen to executive vice president of supply chain to replace Levy.
“In a relatively short period of time, both Stu and Cindy have made profound positive impacts on our company,” Allison said in a statement. “They are strong, capable leaders who are respected across our global system, and I am excited to have them in these roles.”
Since Levy joined the Domino’s team in 2019, he has “improved service to U.S. and Canadian franchisees” while driving production and distribution operations efficiencies and strengthening the company’s supplier relationships, which has helped it to navigate the challenges of the pandemic. Prior to joining Domino’s, he served as executive vice president and chief transformation officer for Republic Services Inc., a non-hazardous waste collections service.
“Stu has a recognized ability to develop and execute practical strategies to drive bottom-line results,” Allison said in a statement.
Headen came to Domino’s in 2015 as vice president of procurement and product management and was promoted in 2018 to senior vice president of global procurement and supply chain operations. Prior to joining Domino’s, she worked for PepsiCo in global procurement roles for 15 years.
“During her time with Domino's, Cindy and her team have been able to secure substantial cost savings to our system by negotiating new contract terms with many of our suppliers and vendors,” Allison said in a statement. “More importantly, she has led the drive to stabilize pricing from our suppliers, ensuring our cost structure is predictable, while simultaneously ensuring an uninterrupted supply of our key food products.”
As of June 14, Domino’s has 17,173 stores globally.
