Gusto Italian operations director Tony Griffin has left his role to pursue a new challenge, MCA understands.

Griffin has worked for Gusto, and before that Living Ventures, for 23 years.

He said: “Having learnt and achieved so much with one company it’s time to see just how big the world really is! Onwards and upwards.”

Gusto, which was originally part of Living Ventures under Tim Bacon and Jeremy Roberts, was part of a management buy-out in 2014, backed by Palatine Private Equity.
