Former Itsu CFO Landen Prescott Brann, who spent four years helping the business grow from 30 to 70 sites and delivering an estimated £100m turnover this year, has joined ETM Group.
Brann will be the new CFO of the privately owned bar, restaurant and pub company, ETM Group, which is looking to strengthen its senior team and accelerate future growth.
Prior to this, Brann was CFO/CEO at the Paul Allen-owned private members club, The Hospital Club. He also spent 100 years with PepsiCo, holding CFO roles at both Pepsi UK/ Ireland CFO and Tropicana/Quaker where he won the coveted Chairman’s award.
Brann will work collaboratively with ETM Group founders, Tom and Ed Martin, to build on the success of the company established 16 years ago.
ETM Group founder, Ed Martin, commented on the appointment: “We’re thrilled to have a high calibre individual like Landen joining us as we move into the next phase of ETM Group’s development.
“His wealth of experience and broad leadership skills, gained from a career spanning retail, fast casual dining, hospitality and consumer goods, will be invaluable in delivering the ambitious growth plans that we have for the business.”
The 11-strong ETM portfolio includes the recently opened Burdock on the ground floor of Montcalm Royal London House on the City’s Finsbury Square with Aviary, ETM’s first ever rooftop bar and restaurant, opening later this month at the same hotel.
Early 2017 will see the launch of Greenwood in the highly anticipated Nova development in Victoria. The 11,000 square foot pub and restaurant is spread over two floors and will include a brow/lashes bar and barbershop as well as an 80-cover outdoor seating area on the ground floor and an upstairs bar screening domestic and international sport.
