Manchester-based Revolution Bars Group plc announced the appointment of Rob Pitcher as its new chief executive Officer.
The joining date will be advised in due course.
Pitcher has more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality sector, most recently as a member of the executive committee of Mitchells & Butlers (M&B) as divisional director restaurants responsible for the Harvester, Toby Carvery and Stonehouse brands.
Prior to joining M&B, Pitcher held senior positions at many other leading hospitality companies including Bramwell, Stonegate, Town & City, Laurel, Spirit and Scottish & Newcastle Retail.
Keith Edelman will revert to his previous role as non-executive chairman.
Edelman said: “We have undertaken a wide-ranging and exhaustive search for a new chief executive with extensive relevant experience to take the company to our next stage of growth.
“Rob Pitcher’s proven operational experience and leadership qualities with considerably bigger companies will enhance the ongoing development of the Revolution and Revolucion de Cuba brands.
“The board looks forward to working with him.”
