Alison Dilley, former marketing director at Carluccio’s, has joined Caffe Nero as its new head of international marketing.

Dilley left Carluccio’s earlier this year after two and a half years as marketing director for the Landmark Group. She was previously head of marketing at TGI Friday’s UK for over two years.

Carluccio’s, the Mark Jones-led chain, appointed James Backhouse as its new marketing director, in February.

Backhouse joined the group, which operates over 100 restaurants nationwide, after seven years with Evans Cycles, including the last three and a half as its marketing director.

Previously he spent five years as commercial director at Leon.
