Revolution Bars appoints Rob Pitcher as CEO

Revolution Bars Group has announced the appointment of Rob Pitcher as chief executive following Mark McQuater's resignation last year.

Pitcher has more than 25 years' experience within the hospitality sector, most recently as a member of the executive committee of Mitchells & Butlers as divisional director restaurants responsible for the Harvester, Toby Carvery and Stonehouse brands.

Prior to this, he held senior positions at hospitality companies including Bramwell, Stonegate, Town & City, Laurel, Spirit and Scottish & Newcastle Retail. His joining date has not yet been announced.

Former chief executive Mark McQuater resigned in October 2017 after Stonegate dropped its £101.5m takeover offer after it emerged that 54% of Revolution's shareholders voted against the deal.

Keith Edelman will revert to his role as non-executive chairman.

Edelman said: "We have undertaken a wide-ranging and exhaustive search for a new chief executive with extensive relevant experience to take the company to our next stage of growth. Rob Pitcher's proven operational experience and leadership qualities with considerably bigger companies will enhance the ongoing development of the Revolution and Revolución de Cuba brands."
