Mr. Lawrence added: “Wow. What a ride! 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 have 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 #1, to helping shape our digital transformation over the past decade…I have had the chance to work with amazing people to sell more pizza and have more fun! I am truly thankful for having had the opportunity to serve this great brand for so long and thank the Board, Ritch and his leadership team, my team and, most importantly, the franchisees and front-line team members who are the heart of Domino’s. Being in the stores is what I will miss the most! After taking some time off with my family, I will move on to my next adventure forever proud of what we have all built together.”
