Pieology Snags a Yum Brand Vet to Lead Marketing

Pieology has appointed Yum Brands veteran Adrienne Berkes to be its new chief marketing officer, overseeing the brand’s domestic and international expansion.

“Adrienne is an accomplished marketing strategist with strong QSR retail experience and a passion to build brands,” said Gregg Imamoto, Pieology’s CEO.

Berkes brings extensive experience to the Tustin, Calif.-based pizza chain. She spent more than 17 years at Yum Brands, where she was director of brand marketing for Taco Bell.

Adrienne Berkes will lead marketing at Pieology, the company announced today.

She also served as CMO for Pizza Hut in the UK and Ireland, subsequently assumed responsibility for Pizza Hut’s European markets as the chief sales and brand officer. After returning to the U.S., she helped develop delivery program and later worked on digital transformation strategy and opened the brand’s first ghost kitchen.

“I’m absolutely thrilled and look forward to be joining the team and look forward to working with the RSC team, our franchisees and team members on this incredible brand,” says Adrienne, who loves to travel, both domestically and internationally, and exploring new foods.

“My priorities will be driving innovation, our consumer’s love of Pieology and opening new markets for Pieology as we move forward.”
