The chain has appointed Antony Perring as chief financial officer and Chris Burford as director of finance. Both previously worked at Wagamama, overseeing the expansion of the group from 35 to 110 company-owned sites.
Leon currently operates 21 sites and plans to open a further 12 in 2015, the first of which will open later this month in Holborn.
To achieve our potential we need a team of world-class leaders who have relevant experience, and who share our values. Antony and Chris were the lead candidates in a very thorough and far-reaching search. Just as important as their experience is the positivity and strength of character they display. I wish them a very long and prosperous career with us,” said LEON co-Founder and chief executive John Vincent.
“They’re joining at a really exciting time for LEON. 2014 was a very strong year, and we now have big plans for this year, with twelve new restaurant openings. Antony and Chris are important to this growth, and to cementing our position as the original founders of, and leaders in, naturally fast food.”
