Revolution Bars Group, the operator of the Revolution and Revolución de Cuba brands, has appointed former Intertain chief financial officer Mike Foster as its new interim chief financial director.
Foster will work with the company while the search for a permanent replacement continues after Chris Chambers resigned in February.
Chambers, who will step down from the board tomorrow joined Revolution Bars Group in August, replacing Sean Curran.
Revolutions Bars Group stated: “Mike is an FCA with hands-on financial reporting and commercial management experience gained in senior positions in large multi-site retail and leisure businesses, including the past 20 years in major pub and bar companies. Most recently, he was chief financial officer of Intertain (operator of Australia bar brand Walkabout) from 2009 until December 2016 when it was sold to Stonegate Pub Company. Prior to that, he was chief financial officer of Regent Inns from 2005 and held a number of senior accounting roles at Spirit Group (formerly with Scottish & Newcastle Retail), Esporta and First Leisure Corporation.”
At the same time, the company has promoted Kate Eastwood from director of business development to sales director.
Eastwood joined Revolution from in 2013 after being head of sales & marketing at Bramwell Pub Company.
