Le Pain Quotidien, the all-day bakery and cafe concept, has appointed former PizzaExpress employee, Pui Ho, as its new head of training across its 24-strong UK estate.

Ho was formerly head of training at Krispy Kreme and head of training & development at PizzaExpress.

Last year, the company strengthened its UK head office team with the appointment of former Zizzi marketeer Elizabeth Norris as its new marketing director and ex-Starbucks asset manager Ben Suffolk as its new head of property.

The group, which is led in the UK and France by Jack Moran, is looking to add another 15 to 20 in the UK in the coming three years.
