Fast food chain Domino's Pizza has appointed a new head of IT, after incumbent Ian Foxley decided to franchise his own Domino's stores.

Marc Halpern, who has previously worked as lead technician for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, will be responsible for supporting Domino's corporate- and store-level IT infrastructure and making decisions about the development and design of new technologies.

Halpern will play an important role in Domino's ambitious plans to double its UK store base, which currently stands at 252, said Stephen Hemsley, chief executive at the company.

"His knowledge and expertise are exactly what we need to ensure that our IT systems meet the demands of this rapidly growing business," he said.

"Effective technology plays a part in everything from stores' efficiency and innovative customer ordering systems to maximising the marketing potential of customer databases and, eventually, controlling all areas of electrical use inside stores."

Halpern said he is looking forward to working with a company that has spearheaded the use of new technologies in its market. What is most exciting is "the fact that I get to work in an environment where I can combine my two of my biggest passions - pizza and technology", he said.

During his 17-month tenure as IT director Foxley took charge of a number of projects, including the implementation of Microsoft Windows 2000, an ADSL roll-out and the introduction of a touch-screen ordering system for employees.
