Boparan Restaurant Group appoints new CEO

Boparan Restaurant Group (BRG) has appointed Tom Crowley as its new chief executive.

Crowley, who was previously managing director of Giraffe Restaurants, has been installed in the role following the departure of Joe Teixeira, who has stepped down as CEO of Boparan Ventures (BVL) in order to explore new roles within the sector.

Crowley said: "We thank Joe for his support in developing Harry Ramsden's and FishWorks and wish him the very best for the future. Moving forward, with seven quality brands operating in over 100 sites alongside a strong franchise business, we intend to quickly establish Boparan Restaurant Group as a major player in the hospitality market. Our objective is to further strengthen and grow the positions of all our brands nationally and internationally whilst at the same time creating a restaurant group with the capability of making future acquisitions."

The Cinnamon Collection will continue to be managed separately by Vivek Singh.

Boparan Restaurant Group has recently embarked on a string of acquisitions, snapping up 33 Ed's Easy Diners, as well as Vivek Singh's Cinnamon Collection and a number of Giraffe restaurants.
