Pizza Inn Holdings Inc. has named Timothy Mullany chief financial officer effective May 5, the company said Wednesday.

Mullany will succeed Jerome Trojan, who left The Colony, Texas-based pizza operator last June. Pizza Inn also owns and franchises the fast-casual Pie Five Pizza Co. brand.

“I have no doubt that Pie Five will be the next great success story in the fast-casual space and that Pizza Inn will remain a popular destination for pizza lovers,” Mullany said in prepared remarks.

Mullany most recently was CFO of Restaurants Unlimited Inc., the Seattle-based parent to more than 20 full-service and fast-casual brands, including Kincaid’s, Palomino and Henry’s Tavern.

Randy Gier, Pizza Inn’s chief executive, said in a statement that Mullany “will be an integral member of our senior management team, with responsibilities extending beyond those of a traditional CFO.

“Tim’s experience in a multi-branded company, where he balanced the needs of a strong legacy brand and an emerging high-growth brand, is directly relevant to the opportunities here,” Gier said.
 
Before joining Restaurants Unlimited, Mullany served as chief financial officer at Denver-based Smashburger and its parent company, Consumer Capital Partners.

Pizza Inn owns and franchises more than 275 restaurants.
