Soon after President and CEO, Jack Butorac, purchased the franchise rights for Marcoâ€™s Pizza, Oâ€™Malley was given the opportunity to become the Franchise Representative for Cleveland, OH. In this role, Oâ€™Malley was responsible for Franchisees in the area and made a contribution to their business with special emphasis on PSI, profitability, compliance, training, and communication. With the companyâ€™s rapid growth and inception of the Area Representatives program, Oâ€™Malley was promoted to AR Coordinator in 2008.

As Vice President, Oâ€™Malleyâ€™s goal is to grow the company both in terms of number of locations and store profitability. â€śI take pride in the small victories. For example, I always get charged up after working with a franchise owner having difficulty realizing the full potential of his or her store, and over time watching sales and profits increase,â€ť said Oâ€™Malley. â€śI feel accomplished when I can inspire positive change in others, and that is what I intend to do in my new role as Vice President.â€ť
