Domino’s takes delivery of new general counsel
Domino’s Pizza has hired Kevin Morris as its new general counsel, reporting to the company’s CEO Patrick Doyle.
Morris will start in his new role on January 3, 2017, having relocated to Ann Arbor, Michigan. He was most recently senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary for New York-based Equinox Holdings, which owns and operates a range of health and fitness entities, including Equinox, SoulCycle, Blink Fitness and Pure Yoga. A spokesperson for Equinox Holdings had no comment when asked about plans to fill the company’s general counsel and corporate secretary posts.
Morris has in the past run his own private legal practice, served as vice president and associate general counsel at Global Hyatt Corporation, been a senior international attorney and staff director at McDonald’s Corporation, and worked as an attorney at DLA Piper, formerly Rudnick & Wolfe.
‘Kevin has extensive global experience in all critical legal functions – from mergers and acquisitions to major financing transactions; from corporate governance to intellectual property protection – and he’s worked for some of the world’s most well-respected brands,’ Doyle says in a statement.
Domino’s has more than 13,200 stores in more than 80 markets. According to the company, it had global retail sales of more than $9.9 billion last year, with more than $4.8 billion in the US and nearly $5.1 billion internationally.
