Luke Johnson exits Harbour & Jones board of directors

Harbour & Jones (H&J) has parted company with Luke Johnson less than two years after the serial entrepreneur joined the boutique caterer's board of directors.

The chairman of Risk Capital Partners and former Channel 4 chairman took up his post of non-executive director in June 2013.

However it has just now emerged that he exited the post around three months ago.

H&J co-founders Patrick Harbour and Nathan Jones told The Caterer: "We parted with mutual agreement and we wish Luke continued success with his various projects."

Johnson added: "My departure from H&J was perfectly amicable. I stepped down because I am busy with companies where I own shares, and to avoid any possible conflict with Genuine Dining Co, where I own the majority."

Johnson acquired caterer Yes Dining in 2011 after managing director Chris Mitchell pitched the idea of a management buyout. The business was subsequently rebranded as the Genuine Dining Co.
