Quiznos Appoints Two Executives

Quiznos named George Jeffrey Global Chief Operating Officer to lead all global operations. Jeffrey, who has served as Chief Operating Officer of Quiznos Canada since 2009, has led the expansion and overhaul of Quiznos International operations. Susan Lintonsmith was appointed Global Chief Marketing Officer. Lintonsmith joined Quiznos as U.S. Chief Marketing Officer in 2012 and has led the transition of Quiznos marketing from traditional media to a greater focus on digital and social media as well as the improvement and simplification of the U.S. menu.

Quiznos Announces Executive Changes

Quiznos' latest step in its restructuring involves a new leader for the troubled sub-sandwich chain. The Denver-based company announced that it has tapped former head of the Krystal Burger chain Doug Pendergast to replace its CEO of the past 2-1/2 years. Pendergast will be asked to help lead its turnaround just six months after the chain exited bankruptcy protection. Pendergast most recently served as president and CEO of The Krystal Company, overseeing an increase in locations and in unit-level profitability. He replaces Stuart Mathis, who had served as Quiznos president and CEO since July 2012, leading the company both into and out of bankruptcy protection and overseeing the continued decline in national locations, from roughly 5,000 before 2008 to about 1,100 by the end of 2014.

Quiznos Announces Management Changes

Quiznos announced the appointment of Doug Pendergast as the company's new President and Chief Executive Officer.

Prior to that, he held positions as Chief Development & Franchising Officer for Craftworks, EVP & Chief Franchise Officer for Church's Chicken, and VP of Strategy for AFC Enterprises. Mr. Pendergast succeeds Stuart Mathis, who has resigned to pursue other opportunities.
