Domino’s Pizza Enterprises has denied the chief executive of its European operations will jump ship to lead the Domino’s master franchise for the UK and Ireland.
The UK’s Sky News reported that Andrew Rennie was a leading candidate to take over from David Wild as chief executive of London-listed Domino’s Pizza Group.
Not true, says Queensland-headquartered Domino’s Pizza Enterprises, Australia’s largest pizza chain, which also serves in France, Germany, Belgium, New Zealand, Japan and Belgium.
“There is no substance to that speculation and Andrew has confirmed he is committed to his current role,” Domino’s Pizza Enterprises said in a statement to the ASX.
At 1031 AEST on Friday, Domino’s shares were up 33 cents, or 0.86 per cent, to $38.69.
“As a senior executive in this business, and a significant holder of DMP shares, I am invested in our future and look forward to delivering on the growth plans we have outlined to the market,” Mr Rennie said in the statement.
