Domino’s has appointed from within its ranks two new bosses to lead the franchise operations and corporate operations divisions.
Kellie-Anne Drever steps in to the head of franchise operations role after spending nearly three decades at the pizza business.
Greg Steenson is a former Domino’s franchisee, and he takes on the role of head of corporate operations.
From teenage pizza maker to franchise chief
Drever will oversee the operations of more than 700 Domino’s stores nationally and joins the executive leadership team.
She worked in store management and corporate positions which included training and innovation roles, and as Queensland market manager.
Drever has rolled out the GPS driver tracker, pizza checker and inventory app. She has also received top accolades from Domino’s, taking home five Leadership Eagle Awards.
“I’ve sort of grown with the company,” she said. “When I started there were about 100 stores and today we have 3,419 across 10 markets around the world.”
Drever said the real changes to running a pizza business are in streamlining processes with technology.
Domino’s ANZ CEO David Burness praised Drever’s diligence and dedication,
“She will bring this focus to our operations right across the country,” he said.
Multi-award winning franchisee takes corporate role
Greg Steenson has also been a stalwart at Domino’s, starting out as a pizza delivery driver more than 20 years ago.
He franchised his first store in 2007 with business partner Nathan Carrington and the pair bought six more Domino’s stores. They won three Leadership Eagle Awards and Domino’s International Gold Franny Award.
Steenson takes on the corporate operations role, with Carrington appointed as the national operations manager.
Burness said he is thrilled to have a franchisee with Steenson’s calibre leading corporate operations.
“Greg know how to build and run a successful multi-unit Domino’s business. He is customer-focused and fanatical about operational excellence. his stores have, for many years, been some of the best in Australia,” he said.
