Domino’s names Kirsty Pitcher as people director

Pitcher joins the pizza chain from Boots where she has been HR Director, Retail and Operations, across the UK and Ireland since 2018.

Domino’s announced the appointment of Kirsty Pitcher as People Director, effective March 14.

The executive is expected to focus on “advancing the company’s Inclusion & Diversity agenda; recruitment and retention; embedding Domino’s core values into the culture of the business; and ensuring colleagues benefit from the company’s aim to deliver a better future through food people love,” the chain said.

Pitcher joins Domino’s from Boots where she has been HR Director, Retail and Operations, across the UK and Ireland since 2018. With over 20 years’ experience, she has worked in HR roles across retail, hospitality, healthcare, and automotive industries, as well as other franchise-model businesses. Prior to Boots, Kirsty was HR Director at Jaguar Land Rover for six years and held other roles within the company before then.

“The people side of our business is critical to our success. In 2021 we hired around 7,000 new colleagues across our stores and participated in the Government’s Kickstarter scheme. Kirsty’s experience will help us continue to attract and retain the best talent, alongside offering great development opportunities across our system as we continue to successfully grow our business,” Dominic Paul, CEO of Domino’s Pizza Group, said in a statement.

“We have a world class leadership team, and Kirsty’s experience and enthusiasm will build on our ability to take advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead for us.”

Pitcher added: “It’s an exciting time to be joining Domino’s. The company already has a fantastic track record of developing talent internally, with a significant proportion of store managers and franchisees progressing through the business. I can’t wait to get to know the team and build on these great foundations.”
