Denise Pedini, EVP of Marketing for our client Pizza Inn, has been named a Finalist for “CMO of the Year” by the DFW chapter of the American Marketing Association. She has become one of DFW’s most notable food marketers, coming on full time in 2013 to a Pizza Inn brand that had experienced several years of negative-to-flat sales. The turnaround of “America’s Hometown Pizza Place,” now with eight straight quarters of positive SSSG and 20% of restaurants experiencing double-digit growth under her leadership, will be recognized at a May 2 gala. Denise is the 6th straight “CMO of the Year” Finalist for the agency, with three winning the coveted award.
