Little Caesars Pizza, the global family-owned pizza chain, has named Erin Martin chief of staff. In the newly created role, Martin will act as strategic advisor to Little Caesars president and CEO Dave Scrivano and its leadership team. Martin has been with Little Caesars since 2007, previously serving as vice president, business support services and general counsel.
“This is an exciting time for Little Caesars, marked by continued growth domestically and internationally, as well as an ongoing focus on tech and innovation that allows us to provide best-in-class service and value,” Scrivano said. “Erin’s extensive knowledge and experience in employment and franchise law, as well as her ability to successfully manage various departments within Little Caesars, will help us build on our incredible momentum.”
As the vice president, business support services and general counsel, Martin led the legal and business support teams, including real estate, construction, U.S. development, training and communications. Under her leadership, she provided counsel during several key initiatives for Little Caesars, including the chain’s new world headquarters expansion in downtown Detroit, and several projects designed to advance the company’s interests in the areas of diversity, government relations and corporate growth. Martin also supported the legal needs of several other businesses within the Ilitch Family of Companies, including Blue Line Foodservice Distribution, Champion Foods and the Little Caesars Fundraising Pizza Kit program.
“I care deeply about Little Caesars and am honored to take on this new role to help guide the strategic direction of the business and closely support Dave,” Martin said. “I look forward to continuing to work alongside my talented colleagues to achieve unprecedented success for the company in areas such as growth, expansion, innovation and service.”
