Ken Calwell will be leaving Domino’s after nearly seven years in the job of Chief Marketing Officer. Patrick Doyle, President, Domino’s USA, will oversee the job during the executive search process, which is already underway.

Doyle had previously served as Domino’s marketing chief, as well as its executive vice president of International and Team USA, prior to being named President of the U.S. division. He will take over direct supervision, on an interim basis, of all marketing functions, including the oversight of the company’s partnership with its advertising agency, Crispin, Porter + Bogusky.

David Brandon, Domino’s Chairman and CEO, said, “We want to thank Ken for everything he has done for Domino’s Pizza. This included five years of his contributing to our 12-year string without a negative same store sales comparison. We wish Ken and his family the very best in their future endeavors, and consider them great friends of Domino’s Pizza.”

Brandon added that Doyle and team are currently in the process of executing a strategic pricing, product, and operations plan to regain positive same store sales in the U.S.
