Inventive Leisure, the operator of the Revolution Vodka Bar chain, has appointed Kevin Norman, formerly of JD Wetherspoon (JDW), as its new head of acquisitions. Norman joins the 66-strong group after over three-and-a-half years as senior acquisitions surveyor with JDW. It is thought that Norman will eventually head up the whole of Inventive’s property department. The Alchemy Partners-backed group, which launched its Revolucion de Cuba concept last year, is looking to open new sites throughout the UK, and has previously said it hopes to eventually grow to a 120-strong estate.
