RCapital, the private equity owner of Little Chef, has appointed former KPMG restructuring specialist Myles Halley as its new chairman. At the time of his departure from KPMG after nearly 30 years with the company, Halley was head of its UK restructuring practice, with a team of 600 and revenues in excess of £1bn annually. His appointment comes at a time when RCapital is being linked as a possible suitor for nightclub operator Luminar, which fell into administration last month. Jamie Constable, chief executive and co-founder of RCapital, said, “Myles Halley has a wealth of experience and we have worked closely with him over many years on a number of turnaround transactions. We are very excited about having him join us as chairman, his skills are exactly what we as a turnaround specialist need in order to be able to take advantage of the many opportunities that continue to present themselves to us in the current economic climate.”
