Amanda Dobinson has stepped down as marketing director at D&D London to become commercial director at Gordon Ramsay Group (GRG), M&C Report understands.

Dobinson joins the high-profile chef’s company after nearly three and a half years with D&D. She was previously European retail marketing director at Polo Ralph Lauren for nine years.

She joins GRG as it gears up to open Heddon Street Kitchen in Regent’s Street Food Quarter, which is scheduled to launch on 8 November.

The company is also set to reopen the former Aubergine restaurant in Chelsea where Ramsay held his first head chef position under the name Park Walk.

Ramsay will open his next international venture, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City early next year.
