Second senior figure to leave nightclub operator Luminar in a week

A second senior director has quit nightclub operator Luminar in less than a week.

Commercial development director Brendan McLoughlin will leave the company at the end of November after 17 years service.

At the start of the month company secretary Harry Willits quit his role.

Luminar has appointed David Haimes, 43, who was most recently managing director of retailer Tchibo, to replace McLoughlin as managing director (operations).

Haimes has previously worked as general manager of Pizza Hut, Germany.

In May the company said its entertainment division, which includes Chicago Rock Café and Jumpin' Jaks, did not form part of it long-term strategy.
