by Katie Lee

Denver — America’s hot sandwich pioneer Quiznos has selected Susan Lintonsmith as its new chief executive officer. Most recently, she was global chief marketing officer for the brand.

Lintonsmith has more than 25 years of experience working with world-class brands, and a proven record of success as a member of Quiznos executive team. Joining the brand as chief marketing officer in 2012, Lintonsmith led the revitalization of Quiznos’ marketing efforts. In her most recent role as global chief marketing officer, she was instrumental in opening the China market and leading the opening of Quiznos Grill, a foray into a premium sandwich in a fast-casual environment. 

“Susan has a real passion for the restaurant industry and has been a vital contributor to Quiznos’ successful brand evolution over the last 4 years,” says Quiznos’ chairman, Doug Benham.

In addition to Lintonsmith’s new leadership position, Quiznos has named Christina Maxwell as chief financial officer. Maxwell joined Quiznos in 2012 as senior vice president of finance and accounting. Maxwell has more than 20 years of experience in financial analysis, strategic planning and process flow improvements.

Maxwell’s predecessor, Katie Scherping, CFO and interim president and CEO, is leaving the company to pursue an opportunity outside the restaurant industry. 

Quiznos is celebrating its 35th anniversary this summer. For more information, visit www.quiznos.com.
