Mark Derry has been appointed executive chairman of Brasserie Bar Co.

Derry, who held the position of CEO, takes over from Ian Edwards who will continue as a retained adviser to the pub and restaurant group, which incorporates the Brasserie Blanc and White Brasserie brands.

Edwards also sits on the boards of Hippo Inns, Pizza Pilgrims and the Seafood Pub Company.

Brasserie Bar Co has 19 French brasseries and 17 pub-brasseries around the UK.
