LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Papa John's International, Inc. announced the hiring of three new officers it expects will invigorate its growth plans.
According to a news release, Grant Miller is now the company's managing director, international; Tim O'Hern has rejoined the company as senior vice president, development; and Glenn West has joined the company as vice president, information services and ecommerce.
Miller will oversee all aspects of the company's international business, including international operations and new restaurant openings (excluding the UK, which will remain under the watch of chief operating officer Bill Van Epps).
Miller is the former president, international brand services, for Allied Domecq QSR, which operates 3,400 Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin' Donuts stores in 65 countries.
O'Hern returns to the company after working as vice president, development, from 1997 to 2002. During that time he oversaw the opening of approximately 1,400 company-owned and franchised Papa John's restaurants. He also owned and operated Capital Pizza, a Papa John's franchisee operating 15 units in Indiana and Illinois.
West brings 24 years of restaurant industry systems experience to the company. He most recently served as vice president of information technology services with Yorkshire Global Restaurants through 2003. He will oversee all field and corporate information services throughout the Papa John's domestic and international systems.
