Casual dining restaurant chain Bill's has appointed Mark Fox as its new chief executive officer.
The newly created role will see Fox, a former managing director of Starbucks UK, work alongside chief operating officer Roberto Moretti and managing director Scott MacDonald.
Fox takes up his role on 31 May and will continue to grow the Bill's brand, as well as its evolution into secondary smaller café-style formats called Little Bill's.
Prior to Fox's role at Starbucks, he was managing director at Yum III UK and Pizza Hut Delivery.
Bill's, founded by Bill Collison, now has 70 sites around the UK.
Collison started the business as a single site in Sussex after his greengrocer shop was destroyed by a flood in 2000. He sold a stake in 2008 to Côte Restaurants, which demerged it four years later. It is now majority owned by Richard Caring.
