YO! Sushi installs new CFO as Andrew Campbell departs

Japanese restaurant group YO! Sushi has installed Edward Knighton as its new chief financial officer, as it announced that incumbent Andrew Campbell is leaving the business.

Knighton was most recently chief financial officer at Sofa.com Group.

Campbell has been instrumental in the restructuring of YO! Sushi over the past four years, following its acquisition by Mayfair in November 2015, opening 12 new restaurants, setting up the US business, and implementing two operating systems overhauls.

Campbell is leaving to pursue new opportunities in the leisure sector.

YO! Sushi chief executive Robin Rowland said: "Andrew has been a key member of the team throughout the sale process, and the last 18 months as we have reset the business with the new owners on board. I've loved working with him and am sad to see him go. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

"We're excited to welcome Edward to the team, who has a wealth of relevant experience working in companies moving to the next stage of their development."
