Domino's Pizza Group, con sede en el Reino Unido, anunció el viernes que el CFO David Bauernfeind murió después de un trágico accidente mientras estaba de vacaciones con su familia, informa Bloomberg News.
La tragedia, que sucedió el jueves, llega en un momento difícil para Domino's: la compañía todavía está buscando un nuevo presidente y un nuevo CEO, y sin su CFO, el C-Suite se ve peligrosamente vacío de cara al nuevo año.
"Our Chief Financial Officer, David Bauernfeind, died in a tragic accident on Thursday, 26th December whilst on holiday with his family," the British company said in a statement given to Reuters.
Bauernfeind was made permanent CFO of Domino's back in October 2018, and also gained an executive director position on the company's board.
He was initially appointed earlier in the year on an interim basis, and following a successful trial period, the company decided to make his position permanent.
Before joining Domino's, Bauernfeind held the CFO job at Connect Group until June 2018. Before that, he was CFO at technology services provider Xchanging for five years, from 2011 to 2016.
Domino's Pizza Group is the largest master franchisee of Domino's Pizza. It owns exclusive rights to operate Domino's franchises in a large swath of Western Europe.
