Replacing current CFO James Sherrington, who will step down after six years at the group, King has over 20 years’ financial experience, having held previous financial officer positions at Clarion Events, Vue Entertainment, McDonald’s and Deep Blue Restaurants.

“We are delighted to have David on board and his multi-site experience will be invaluable in supporting the brand as we develop our ‘at home’ experience further and in getting us ready to reopen,” said Drake & Morgan CEO Jillian MacLean.

“I have long admired Drake & Morgan and am looking forward to working with Jillian MacLean and her team; supporting the Drake & Morgan brand as we navigate through the pandemic whilst ensuring we are in the best shape possible when we are able to reopen safely and welcome our customers back,” added King.
