Domino’s appoints Matthias Hansen as group chief technology officer
He has over 30 years’ global experience and held a number of technology and digital leadership roles.
ASX-listed Domino’s Pizza Enterprises announced the appointment of Matthias Hansen as the group’s chief technology officer following a global search.
The chain said he will commence in the role starting Monday, 7 June, initially working with the pizza firm’s team in Europe before relocating with his family to Australia at the end of the year.
With over three decades of experience, Hansen is currently residing in Switzerland where he was working for a private equity-based security solutions company with a footprint across 16 countries globally and leading a team of 600 staff across the continent.
Prior to joining Domino’s, Hansen held technology and digital leadership roles in Telstra, Centrica Plc, T-Mobile, Dell Corporation and Renault Financial Services.
“The appointment of a leader with Matthias’ experience and capability demonstrates the importance of technology to the future of this business,” Domino’s Pizza Enterprises CEO and managing director Don Meij said in a media release. “We are excited about working with the talented team members of the Technology function, helping our people grow and prosper as we deliver on the next step of our growth strategy.”
With Hansen’s appointment, the company said group chief digital and technology officer Michael Gillespie’s title will be changed to group chief digital and experience officer but says his remit will remain unchanged.
