By Canadian Pizza   


April 24, 2009, Louisville, KY – Papa John's International appointed Joseph Jude Thompson as president and chief operating officer.

Thompson will continue on the Papa John’s board of directors
where he has served since February 2008, and in his new role will report
to founder and chairman John Schnatter, who at the board’s request will
continue as CEO, a role he returned to on an interim
basis in December 2008.

“I am excited that Jude has accepted the offer to join our management
team,” commented Schnatter. “Jude has been an invaluable asset to the
entire Papa John’s system as he helped me lead the company during the
last 120-day transition period. I look forward to continuing our
partnership together.”
