Sean Burlinson has left his role as head of food at POD, the healthy fast food and coffee shop operator, MCA has learnt.

Burlinson, who had previously worked for Harris + Hoole and Spirit Pub Company, had been in the role since January 2016.

Last month MCA reported the departure of Tim Bartram, chief financial officer/chief operating officer of the 24-strong, London-based group.

MCA understands the departure was part of a restructure of POD’s head office team, with executive chairman John Postlethwaite currently overseeing the business.

The company returned to the expansion trail last summer with an opening in Kingsway and followed that by opening its first West End site, which trades all-day and seven-days a week, in Seven Dials.
