Pizza delivery company Domino's Pizza has named former Costa Coffee chief executive Dominic Paul as its top boss replacing David Wild, whose departure was announced last year. 

Paul, who led Costa Coffee from 2016 to 2019 ahead of its £3.9 billion sale to Coca-Cola last year, will join Domino's on May 1. 

He has also worked with Royal Caribbean Cruise Line as senior vice president, international, and held senior roles at EasyJet, British Midland and British Airways. 

The company, a franchise of US-based Domino's Pizza Inc, appointed Beam Suntory executive Matt Shattock as its chairman earlier this month. 

Domino's Pizza Group is also looking for a chief financial officer after David Bauernfeind died in a snorkelling accident last year. 

The new management will be tasked with overseeing the sale of the company's loss-making international operations and resolving a profit sharing row with its franchisees.
