Domino’s Pizza has named Troy A. Ellis to the brand’s global leadership team as executive vice president—supply chain, reporting to Domino’s CEO J. Patrick Doyle. Ellis is replacing John Macksood, who is retiring from Domino’s after 29 years with the company. Ellis joins Domino’s effective this week.
Ellis, who is a former U.S. Army officer serving in the 101st Airborne, was most recently senior vice president of conversion, overseeing manufacturing, transportation planning, and third-party logistics for Coca-Cola Refreshments. He was responsible for a 12,000-person team producing 2.1 billion cases of beverages from 79 company-owned facilities, 36 contract manufacturing facilities, and 64 third-party warehouses. He served Coca-Cola Refreshments from 2010, including nearly three years as senior vice president of manufacturing, until his move to Domino’s.
From 2000 to 2010, Ellis had various leadership roles with Coca-Cola Enterprises, including central business unit vice president of supply chain, and head of the Coca-Cola headquarters diversity and inclusion council. Prior to joining Coca-Cola, Ellis worked for Kimberly Clark Corp. and PepsiCo, after serving in the U.S. Army from 1988-1991.
“Troy is a senior executive with a demonstrated record of exceeding goals for profitability, customer service, productivity, and people, and he has a strong track record of turning around underperforming operating units,” says Doyle. “We’re lucky to have him and I’m looking forward to his future contributions to our brand.”
Ellis was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. He graduated from Eastern Kentucky University and volunteers his time on a number of boards, including the Southeast Boys and Girls Club of America, Keep America Beautiful, and C5 Georgia Youth Foundation. He is also a member of the board of Western Container Corp., and a former member of Northwestern University’s business advisory board.
Ellis and his wife Michelle have two grown daughters and an 11-year-old son.
