Arc Inspirations, the Leeds based bar operator, has appointed Brett Collier as operations director.

Collier, who was previously operations director at Tokyo Industries, and before that regional director at The Deltic Group and operations manager at Intertain and Novus Leisure, will head up operations in the north west.

He is also co-founder of Liquor Store Bars.

Earlier this year, Leeds-based operator Arc Inspirations secured a new £7m senior debt deal with Santander to fund further growth in both Leeds and Manchester.

It recently opened The Box in Leeds, and a Manahatta cocktail bar in Deansgate, Manchester and Banyan bar-restaurant in Spinningfields, Manchester.
