Randy Gier, CEO – Pizza Inn Holdings

Randy Gier was appointed Chief Executive Officer of Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: PZZI) in November 2012.

Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc. represents two concepts: legendary brand Pizza Inn and revolutionary Pie Five Pizza Co.

Pie Five Pizza Co. launched in 2011 and is a fast casual pizza concept specializing in handcrafted individual pizzas ready in five minutes.

Since Randy joined Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc., Pie Five has grown to nine corporate-owned locations throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and has awarded four multi-unit franchise development agreements with rights to open and operate up to 38 locations across Utah, North Carolina, Florida and Missouri. The first franchise location opened last month near Salt Lake City, Utah.

Randy has also served as the Founder and Chief Eating Officer of Savvy Fare Restaurant Group, a privately-held company focused on the creation, incubation and expansion of new restaurant concepts.

Suzanne Ricketts, Principal – E Heating and Air Conditioning

Suzanne Rickets opened E Heating & Air Conditioning in Dallas with 10 employees this past January.   E Heating & Air Conditioning is a residential HVAC company serving the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex.

After funding the business though a round of investment capital, she hired a cohesive team of solid expertise that had worked together in the industry to hit the ground running. The company installs new systems and repairs existing ones.

Suzanne spent 30 years at Electronic Data Systems as an IT professional with experience in the full spectrum of software development phases using software development life cycle methodology.

Finance was an interest since her college days, so in April 2010 Suzanne began Interface Financial Group providing short term financing for business-to-business (B2B) companies.

E Heating and Air Conditioning has also partnered with Children’s Medical Center – for every system they sell, E Heating and Air Conditioning will donate $100 to Children’s with a goal to sell 500 systems this year for a total of $50,000.  For every service trip, they will donate $10 to Children’s; anticipating doing 1,000 service calls this year, for an additional $10,000.  In addition, they are donating an HEPA Bypass Filtration system to a Children’s patient with breathing problems so one room in the family home has superior air quality for them.
