Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group has appointed Bharti Radix, formerly of Draft House, as interim chief financial officer, MCA understands.

Radix stepped down after over three years as finance director at Draft House earlier this year, after the pub group’s £15m takeover by BrewDog.

She previously spent five years working for the high-profile chef, including a stint as head of finance for Jamie’s Italian International, the Jamie Oliver Foundation and his Fifteen Restaurant initiative.

In April, Crispin Holder stepped down as chief financial officer of Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group just six months after joining the Jamie’s Italian operator and just two months after it underwent a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) process.

Holder, who spent seven years at The Restaurant Group (TRG), had replaced Tara O’Neill who stepped down as chief financial officer of the Jamie Oliver Group, after six years with the company last summer.

The company appointed Ting Ou Yang as an interim finance director. She previously worked at Busaba Eathai and Wagamama.
