Updated on

Toys “R” Us Inc. named David Brandon as its next chief executive officer, turning to the former leader of Domino’s Pizza Inc. to continue a turnaround attempt at the closely held toy retailer.

Brandon will take over on July 1, when current CEO and Chairman Antonio Urcelay retires from the company, according to a statement on Tuesday. Brandon ran Domino’s for 11 years and helped shepherd the pizza chain, then owned by Bain Capital Partners, through the largest initial public offering in restaurant history in 2004.
