MTY announces organizational changes

MTY Food Group Inc.  (TSX: MTY), franchisor and operator of multiple concepts of quick service restaurants, announced changes to its organization that will be effective on June 4, 2012.  These changes are designed to align the Company's structure to the enhanced requirements generated by the growth it experienced in the last few years.

Mrs. Claude St-Pierre, currently Chief Financial Officer of MTY, will now assume the role Chief Operating Officer of the Company.  After more than 20 years with the Company carrying numerous roles successfully, Mrs. St-Pierre has an intimate knowledge of MTY's operations, and as such is the ideal person to undertake the responsibilities related to this newly created position.

Mr. Eric Lefebvre will replace Mrs. St-Pierre as MTY's Chief Financial Officer.  Mr. Lefebvre has been Vice-President of Finance at MTY for the last three years and had been Mrs. St-Pierre's right hand during that period.  Mr. Lefebvre is a Chartered Accountant and holds a Master of Business Administration degree from McGill University.  His prior experience includes various management and finance-related roles with Bell Aliant and Gaz Metro.

Both Mrs. St-Pierre and Mr. Lefebvre will report directly to Mr. Stanley Ma, President and Chief Executive Officer of MTY.
