Côte, the BC Partners-backed group, has promoted Adelle Pearman to the role of operations director.

Pearman has spent the past the year as operations director for Jackson & Rye and Limeyard. In all, she has spent eight years with the group.

She joins Rebecca Tooth and Paul Livesey heading up the operations teams.

The c90 strong company took the decision earlier this year to focus on its eponymous brand, rather than looking at expansion for the three-strong Jackson & Rye and two Limeyard sites.
