Cameron Toomey has replaced Scott Bush as the general manager for Domino’s New Zealand. Domino’s Pizza Enterprises is the master franchisor for the region, and claims to be New Zealand’s largest pizza chain by network store numbers.
Toomey comes to New Zealand from Australia, where he’s worked in the QSR industry for 25 years. He has held several key roles in Domino’s over the past nine years, including most recently franchise market manager for Queensland, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.
Nick Knight, chief executive for Domino’s Australia and New Zealand, says of the appointment:
“Cameron’s knowledge of the Domino’s brand and his experience, both in operations and corporate, make him the perfect candidate to continue the success the New Zealand market has achieved to date… and although we are sad to see Scott leave the local business we are pleased that he is continuing his journey with Domino’s in the UK.”
Toomey praised Domino’s New Zealand’s growth over the past five years in the statement he provided, saying his aim was to build on that success: “continuing to develop Domino’s as New Zealand’s favourite local brand.”
“My family and I are looking forward to the move. New Zealand has a great standard of living and as an avid ultra-distance trail runner, I can’t wait to explore all of the amazing trails that this country has to offer.”
Bush will remain within the Domino’s Pizza Group network as he heads to the UK to take up the position of operations director. Among the highlights of his time running Domino’s are the launch of drone delivery with Flirtey, and solid network sales growth.
Half-year results for the period ending 31 December 2017 showed strong EBITDA growth of 16.2 percent for Australia and New Zealand from $55.2 million in H1 17 to $64.1 million in H1 18. Domino’s has 799 stores across Australia and New Zealand.
