Jack in the Box Inc. continues the strategic transformation of its leadership team with the addition of 14-year franchise restaurant industry veteran Chris Brandon, IRC, as vice president of investor relations, effective June 7.
Brandon joins Jack in the Box from Domino’s Pizza, where he served in a variety of communication roles over the past 14 years, including most recently as director of investor relations. His past roles at Domino’s included responsibility for legislative affairs as well as media and public relations and franchisee events. Previously, Brandon held various sales and marketing positions with NASCAR between 2003 and 2007.
“Chris has proven his ability to build trusting relationships with key members of the investment community and brings deep knowledge of the franchise restaurant industry, with more than a decade of experience communicating growth strategies,” says CFO Tim Mullany. “I’m confident he will be a valuable addition to our team as we embark on a new growth chapter to extend Jack’s reach within existing markets and into new territories over the coming years.”
Brandon says, “I look forward to sharing Jack in the Box’s exciting story of renewed growth. Jack’s new leadership team is instilling a strong culture of service to its guests and franchisees, and I plan to extend that same approach toward members of the investment community.”
Brandon is a 2002 graduate of the University of Kansas with a journalism degree in strategic communication and a degree in psychology. He also completed a master’s degree in sports business from New York University in 2006.
