Marcus Kittrell, Mammoth’s executive vice president, commented, “Dave [Hoffmann] has led big brands with thousands of units driven by owner-operators of all sizes.” Kittrell continued, “He gets that our operator-focus is a key part of what makes Mammoth special and will help us take our store operations to a whole new level of excellence in the coming years.”
Dave Hoffmann stated, “I’m excited to be joining such a talented team of entrepreneurs, and I look forward to working with the leadership team to accelerate growth and scale in the US. Over the past 25 years, I’ve worked shoulder-to-shoulder with operators across the US and the globe, and I’m thrilled to partner with Mammoth as we build on the unique DNA of its owner-operator led business model. I’ve been tracking Mammoth’s progress for some time now, and I believe in the huge potential ahead of us.”
