MOD Pizza seeks former Starbucks vet to spearhead its finance team

Wednesday, Apr 15, 2020

MOD Super-Fast Pizza Holdings LLC recently announced that they have named Josh Guenser as their new Chief Financial Officer. Prior to MOD Pizza, Guenser was the former Senior Vice President of Finance for Starbucks. Guenser served his position at Starbucks for over a decade.

Guenser will oversee financial operations, reporting and accounting for the fast-growing pizza chain’s 480+ locations across North America.

The Starbucks vet surely has the necessary qualifications to take on this new role at MOD Pizza. At Starbucks he served in multiple director-level finance roles with a focus on retail operations, reporting and global supply chain.

Scott Svenson, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of MOD pizza, noted that “Josh is a tremendous leader with deep financial expertise in the global multi-unit retail sector.”

“Josh possesses a deep understanding of complex financial issues across multiple states, countries and continents that will help guide MOD’s strategic vision for the future. On top of that, he has a deep interest in contributing to a company where profit and positive social impact co-exist,” MOD CEO also noted.
