Stearns Named To Lead Partners Foundation

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Nov 15, 2001 - The Domino's Pizza Partners Foundation has a new executive director, who plans to maintain the organization's high standards while steering it toward new heights.

Dana Stearns was selected by the foundation's Board of Directors to lead the non-profit organization established to assist Domino's Pizza team members in time of special need or tragedy as a result of natural disasters, unexpected afflictions, on-the-job accidents and other emergencies. Since it was founded in 1986 by a group of Domino's franchisees, the Partners Foundation, an independent 501(c)(3), has helped thousands of team members and their families with financial, emotional, intermediary and advisory assistance.

"I hope to sustain the momentum that we've been fortunate enough to gain over the past 15 years, and hope to move forward and set our sites on new goals and objectives," Stearns said. "That includes increasing annual giving, and establish types of funding that will enable Partners to give special assistance in perpetuity."

Stearns formerly served as Director of Development for Athletics and as Assistant to the President at Eastern Michigan University's EMU Foundation.

Founded in 1960, Domino's Pizza operates 7,112 stores throughout the United States and 65 international markets.
