Drake & Morgan appoints non-exec chairman and FD

Bar and restaurant group Drake & Morgan has made two new senior appointments, as the company looks to expand.

The move sees non-executive chairman Tony Campbell (pictured) and financial director James Sherrington join the brand and comes after last year's £30m acquisition of the brand by Bowmark Capital.

Campbell has over 25 years' experience as a director of a FTSE company and over 40 years' experience in retailing that spans brands such as ASDA, the Spirit group, Ted Baker and Hobbs.

He currently holds a number of senior positions including non-executive chairman of the White Company and TM Lewin & Sons and non-executive director of the Original Factory Shop.

James Sherrington joins Drake & Morgan from Caprice Holdings and the Birley Group where he was the financial director, reporting directly into Richard Caring and overseeing the financing to support new start up concepts such as Grillshack and Jackson & Rye as well as the JV partnership with Balthazar.

Founder and managing director of Drake & Morgan, Jillian MacLean said: "Tony comes with a wealth of retail and leisure experience and will be a fantastic addition to the team whilst James's considerable restaurant experience will prove invaluable. I look forward to working closely with them both as we take the business through its next stage of growth".

Drake & Morgan has a portfolio of seven London-based bar restaurants and most recently opened the Fable in Farrington in February of this year.
