Popular pizza brand Domino’s has appointed a new General Manager for the New Zealand market, covering 144 stores.
Daniel Hawkins was promoted from his role of ANZ Chief Information Officer, a role’s been in for 18 months, to now General Manager of New Zealand.
Previously overseeing the businesses’ IT functions across the Australian and New Zealand market, in his new role as General Manager, Hawkins will work with the 144 franchises and team members to “drive growth across the New Zealand market through a core focus on people, product, delivery and innovation”.
“We are extremely excited to have someone as experienced as Daniel to join the New Zealand team, with a focus and commitment on hero’ing this local market, its team members, customers and wider communities,” says Domino’s Australia New Zealand CEO David Burness.
“As a market with more than 140 stores, and a strong growth plan to build to more than 200 stores in the coming years, I am confident that Daniel is the right person to lead Domino’s through the next stage of growth and development in New Zealand.”
Hawkins succeeds Cameron Toomey after four years in the role, who has since been promoted to the Australia and New Zealand Chief of Development Officer of Domino’s, leading store developments across the two countries.
Hawkins will immediately move to New Zealand and will begin his role as General Manager upon arrival.
Before working for Domino’s, Hawkins held previous technology and digital leadership roles for companies such as Michael Hill and Zarraffa’s Coffee.
