Morris as Executive Vice President—General Counsel at Domino’s Pizza, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Kevin will lead the legal function company-wide, with an emphasis on supporting the needs of the global business. The search was led by Heather Fine and Michael Sachs of Major, Lindsey & Africa’s In-House Practice Group.
“This was an extremely competitive search, and we had some excellent general counsels from across the country show interest in this opportunity,” said Michael Sachs, partner. “Kevin has extensive global experience in all the critical legal functions that Domino's was seeking, and in particular, he has an excellent international and franchising background.”

“Kevin has worked for some of the world’s best known brands, and coming from his role as general counsel at Equinox, he knows how to work with senior leaders and be a true business partner,” said Heather Fine, managing director. “It was also critical for us to find someone who was a substantive and cultural fit with Domino’s, as the company has significant growth plans and sought a general counsel who is committed to working with the Domino’s team to take the company to the next level.”
